Flowers, Veggies, Fruit, and More



















I know that posting about my flowers, and garden may seem kind of boring. But this is part of what we have been so busy with!

We have got our flower pots in and our front bed all done. It was fun picking out flowers and letting the kids help!










Our garden took us two days to finish. I thought we could bust it out in one day but the 100+ weather made us all a little sluggish! HA!





Our raised beds consists of : (1st bed) Green peppers, Red Peppers, jalapeƱo peppers, and a variety of different kinds. (2nd bed) Juicy fat boy tomato's, cherry tomato's, Roma tomato's, and also a variety of others. (3rd bed) Peas, onions, green beans, and yellow beans. (4th bed) This bed has carrots, spinach, spring mix lettuce, and another kind of onion. ~ I hope it all turns out!!





The bigger section of the garden has:
~Crookneck Squash, Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Two varieties of pumpkins, banana squash, yellow squash, zucchini, corn, and two other things I can't remember! I thought that we would have left over room, but we had a hard time fitting all of that in there. We ended up planting our strawberries in hanging baskets because of lack of space!!

We are hoping for lots of harvest so we can make fresh salsa, can lots of things, and enjoy fresh fruit! Yummy....we can't wait!!

Okay, can I just say that you are amazing. How do you find time to plant a garden, and flowers, and wood crafts, and take care of all your cute kids? I can barely make it through the day before I crash into bed and fall into a deep slumber...not! I have a 9 month old remember. I don't know what sleep is! You are great, and I hope your garden is bountiful and beautiful. Way to go girl! Casie

Wow! That is a lot of gardening! We did our veggie garden this week too and I plan on posting all our pics in couple of days. I definitely can't compete with that though. You should have a busy harvest. Good luck!
