Today we were able to get a good start on planting our garden. It was wonderful to be out and working again with the soil. This year I’m planting a larger garden over at my parent’s place. They have a large garden plot and have not really used it the past few years, so I decided that I would like to plant there and then be able to put away most of our veggies for the winter. I will have a small garden here at home, my kitchen garden. My parents live about 7 mintues away, so it shouldn’t be to hard to get over there and keep it weeded. ( I hope!) Plus the children love going to Opa’s and Oma’s!

Planting potatoes, I think that was their favourite thing to plant!

Our toddler was so tired a supper time, that he fell right to sleep!
The garden; still a bit more to plant, but we got quite a bit done today.
So that was our afternoon/evening. We planted Roma tomatoes, one zucchini plant, leeks, onions and spanish onions, peppers, green and yellow beans, potatoes, corn, peas, dill and squash. Plus a couple rows of flowers. We will plant more corn and we need to plant carrots and cucumbers yet. Oh, I also have a few more tomatoes and peppers to plant too, but some of those will be here in my small kitchen garden. I think I just might feel sore tomorrow, my arms already feel it from doing some tilling.
It was a good day! Now tomorrow, I need to get the house back into order. After a houseful yesterday for Sabbath and then ourside most of the day today, I need to spend tomorrow getting the house back into order, it is suppose to rain, so it shouldn’t be to hard to stay indoors.
Praise the Lord for this beautiful day!
