What we did today

Cody wants to plant a garden this year really really really bad. On Saturday he picked out seeds. Lets see if I can remember them all: carrots, tomatoes, beets, turnips, pumpkins, corn, spinach, okra, peas, sunflowers, wild flowers, watermelon, cucumbers...

We were suppose to get snow on Thursday and then that changed to freezing rain and now its just rain above freezing level. The weather is going to be tricky for a bit as we try to head into Spring. So, to stop all the questions of WHEN ARE WE GOING TO PLANT THEM. I surprised him with some soil to make starter plants. We didn't get to all of them planted. There are several packets left.

1) I really hope they grow
2) I guess we'll be eating dinner at the edge of the table for a couple weeks.

oh, all those containers on the table were in our shed from the previous owner :) he use to plant a massive garden every year and he just left those here. There is probably that much more still in the shed.

eta- i lied. i just looked up the weather and the low for the next two days is going to be 28°

I would lov to plant a garden. My hubby used to do watermelons, but I am more towards peppers. Watch out with the maters...bugs!

Oh I wish we didn't live in a townhouse and then I could plant a garden!
