It’s Growing

Spent a Saturday a few weeks back getting the side of our house ready for the garden. Cleaned up the winter mess, overgrown grass, prepped the soil and planted the starter tomato plants and green beans.

Well yesterday my daughter and I dug some trenches and installed some irrigation lines so watering would be easier. Spending time with my daughter was good. I think it’s important and I’m going to try and do more of it… intentionally. I’ll write more about that later. But for now here are some pics of the progress.

Here is a pic of the beginning of our green beans. I’m pretty excited to see if they’ll use the lattice to climb. I hoping they will and produce a lot of beans.

… and here are the tomatoes. I planted four plants this year hoping for a lot, so much so that I can can some.
