getting down & dirty…

we are beginning to see little signs of spring …

peach blossoms are always a welcome sight from a long winters nap.

We have started working on our garden, some how I had the bright idea to enlarge it. I am pretty sure that it is because of this:

the garden from the movie: It’s Complicated {LoVe this movie}

Although I’m not sure how realistic most of this is, I do have to say that I love mixing in cutting flowers with the a vegetable garden.  I also would like to recreate the tomato cages. I can not stand the little wired ones that bend & fall over…

I can honestly say that gardening has become a family affair, the kids really enjoy having a garden also, and I think that it is a great experience for them to learn more about what they eat. And, I think that they are more willing to try more things because they are excited that they grew it themselves…

We’ve got onions planted- that is it so far….will do more things very soon! And I TOTALLY agree with you on the wire tomato cages- they are worthless!

    All of these years of eating fresh food and shopping at farmer’s markets and I STILL don’t have a garden of my own. I’m thinking this is my year!
