Today was a wonderful day.....the sun was shining and it was windy but my Dad came over and we played in the dirt in my yard!
For the past 3-4 years I have wanted to dig up my flower beds in my very tiny back yard so that I could have a small garden.
We started it last year but with the weather not cooperating and a very busy real estate schedule...
that I am very thankful of....
The weeds and grass had completely filled in the flower beds again!
Today we dug and removed the weeds and the grass.
Then we tried some thing new....
we dug up the dirt about 6 inches or so down....
then we added layers of newspaper
covered that with dirt and then planted tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers!
I can't wait for July 22....since they say that they take 52 days to produce tomatoes!!!
Nothing is better than a sun warmed fresh picked tomato from the garden!!!
It isn't a lot but it is a good start. My brother said I could still get some lettuce and radishes in so I will do that this week as well!
Here are a few pictures......I am also including a few of my columbine plants in the front yard....they are gorgeous with all the rain and cool weather we have gotten this year!!!
