How does your Garden Grow.....

It's that time of year again!  Time to get the garden going.
Nothing, and I mean nothing is more exciting or fun for a 3 year old boy!
Now it's time to gather the mulch that we've been making for a year....
That black box holds the magic.
Piles of mulch ready to be worked in....
Rakes are super fun for kids too.  And super dangerous.
We rent a rototiller for $35 for the day...
Next we get all the ash from the wood burning stove and add that to the mulch for extra hearty soil...
Ash is fun for little boys too.
The dirtier and messier the better!
And now for pretty little girls next to pretty little lilac bushes!
When we first planted these bushes she was taller than the bushes!
She's a long tall sally now.
Beauty....
Spring time nails and toes and shorts and flip flops.....
(This is Bebe's hand!)

Mr. Frog Prince sits in the bird bath....
Red hair and freckles makes me happy....
Hitchin' a ride....
And you know what else makes me happy?  People that come over to your house and do a yard "Spring clean-up" and mulch job.  We always do every job ourselves, big or small and I made an executive decision to say yes to the people who stopped by with an offer to do the job at a great price.  I couldn't be happier.  I'm gonna go outside and stare at the mulch with joy.  Did you know that hubs once wanted to mulch on Mother's Day weekend?  Yeah.  That didn't happen.  

We are ready for warmer weather and more camping and deciding which plants to plant in the garden this year!  Have a great week my friends : )

  1. Yeeeahhh. It snowed here yesterday. Like enough to stay on the ground. Won't be planting anything here for quite some time, I'm afraid! :(
