Our Garden...the 2nd Post
Friends....I didn't kill the garden. My hands touched the majority of the seeds and the dirt but everything still decided to grow anyway! Last night we had fresh ONIONS to go along with our supper that Gammy fixed. She fixed potatoes and green beans, tenderloin, mac and cheese, broccoli casserole and CORNBREAD!! Wow. I enjoyed every single bite! I may or may not have had a piece of Italian Creme cake for dessert. :)
We picked beans last night and also some squash and zucchini that's ready to eat! Woohoo. Can you all tell that I LOVE this garden stuff? I must admit that eating stuff that you've grown with your own hands makes you appreciate it much more.
My father in law must have thought that I was getting too hot trying to help him hoe the garden because he kept telling me that it was fine and we didn't need to hoe too much and blah blah blah. Finally I told him that I wasn't going to stop until the weeds were gone and that I was fine and that the sun wouldn't melt me although I'm sweet as sugar and it's possible that too much sun exposure could melt me eventually...ha! He finally just started telling me what to do. LOL. I LOVED LOVED LOVED working in the garden last night and I'm proud of what it looks like. I'll be honest and say that I haven't been able to work in it like everyone else has because I have two kids that obviously make my time a little more non-flexible. But I've done enough to be able to claim part ownership. :)
