YAY!!!! It finally went enough days without rain that we were able to get the ground tilled, the garden in, and the flowers too!!! Now it can rain all it wants! Now my list isn't as extensive as Barbara's (you go girl! :-) but it'll do for now....
1. Yellow, cherry, beefsteak, and big boy tomatoe plants
2. Red and green bell peppers
5. 2 types of carrots
9. Yellow squash
11. Thyme, Italian and sweet basil, and parsley.
I hope they all do well.... I'm worried about a few of the tomatoe plants..... they had some yellow leaves when I bought them and I think they might need some extra love and care but the tops are green so I'm gonna give it a go :-)
Here are some highlights of planting all the flowers today with the kids.... we had a few timeouts when they younger ones wanted to run towards Locust street but over all it went really well.... and hopefully in a few months, I'll have about 100 Gladiolas in the side and front of the house :-) There are a lot of pictures :-) Sorry!
Izeah and HIS plant :-)
John watching the kiddos work.....
Zane just waiting for spade to start digging......
Izeah in time out..... he looks so pissed!
Surprisingly, this is how Zane looked in time out..... what a difference!
Zak and Kayla with the Gladiola's
This was pretty dangerous actually :-)
This was much better...... :-)
