This is how we spent a good portion of our Saturday. Hope and I have been scheming about all the different things we'd like to grow and this weekend we got our first little bit of planting done!
Our yard and flower boxes were an absolute mess. We don't grow grass at all and I'm pretty sure no one has tended to the flower boxes in quite some time. We pulled weeds and weeds and weeds for what seemed like forever before we could even start any digging. There was a solid layer of roots (from weeds) that I had to dig up before anything could go in, but my trusty gardening companion was by my side pulling and digging right along with me.
We bought bushes, roses, and filler flowers, but we are MOST excited about the strawberries and tomatoes. I know there is a good chance that nothing will come from them, but I remember picking fruit and veggies from our garden as a kid and it's something I hope we get to enjoy as well. The adorable bunny that lives in our yard part-time might make that a little bit interesting, though...
Somehow the ice cream man knew to come around right at quitting time. What a guy.
How did you spend your weekend?
