Time To Plant The Garden

My loving husband tilled the earth to pre-pair it for our garden. We planted lettuce, cucumbers, watermelons, cantaloupes, and butternut squash. He also planted strawberries in another area. I was in charge of planting flowers in pots. This year we also decided to plant tomatoes in pots. We will see what comes from our planting. Last year we were overrun with cucumbers. We are learning each year.

We also planted three new azalea bushes. These are my all time favorite outdoor shrub.

Bo kept on saying, “This is how we should live, working the soil, being farmers.” Don’t let this statement fool you. I am a city person. I enjoy the country – I just don’t want to live there.
