Our Garden Story

I have a friend who is crazy like me and works out every morning at 5:00 A.M.  This friend also has explosive vegetable gardens every year.  He asked me last winter if I'd like a few tomato transplants.  I told him I have a black thumb and would probably kill it.  He reassured me I'd be just fine.  

So I thought, what the hey - let's try it. 

A disclaimer.  I know nothing about gardening.  Nothing.

Stupid me.  

So between myself and the troops, a lot of advice and me actually talking to the plants (no joke), our backyard exploded!

It was so super super cool and amazing and mind-blowing!! (it actually worked!)  

Seriously.  Wow!!  Like...this was my favorite part of the summer.  

And the best part - asking my children every evening while making dinner, "Hey honey, can you go pick me a few [insert veggie or fruit] from the garden?"  

Why in the world did I wait so long to start this??

We have big plans for next year.  BIG.  Like potatoes.  And watermelons.  And squash.  And hopefully raspberry transplants from Lea.  And more tomatoes...
