The Garden

We got our garden in a couple of weeks ago.
Before all this rain!
In our lease agreement our landlord will till the garden area for us. One evening one of the landlord’s workers came over with the tractor/tiller and got the garden ready for planting! While Mr. Wiedz’s Dad B was here Mr. Wiedz and I went to nursery next door while he took the big 4 to lunch.

The kids and I (with Mr. Wiedz’s assistance when we needed it) spent the rest of the day getting everything in the ground. I’m pretty excited about the garden this year. Our staples are in there; lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, and pumpkins. We’re trying out some new stuff too; peppers for the landlord’s workers, carrots, and eggplant.

All the rain has totally bummed me out and put puddles in the corn patch. Hopefully some days of sun will make everything triple in size and we’ll be enjoying a homegrown salad any day!
