The Garden is Open, The Garden is Open!!!!

In case you couldn't figure it out by the title - the garden is open! I couldn't wait to get out there and get things going. Here's my planted plot for this season.

Tomatoes, peppers, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, zucchini, romaine, kale, beans, and that might be it. Mr Tech Guy and Auntie M got it mostly planted. Daredevil sat in his car for a bit before running around the garden. It was a gorgeous evening to be out in the country and playing in the dirt.

Some new lillies back at the house. I planted them awhile ago, but here's a new picture.

Daredevil read up on organic gardening after we got back from the garden for his next trip out. No post is complete without a picture of him. Sorry, but it isn't. :)

The new way we transport flowers, mulch, soil, etc around the house. Daredevil's wagons. Who knew they'd be so helpful! I was moving things about while Mr Tech Guy and Auntie M did the major work and Twin managed.

Mr Tech Guy and Auntie M also worked through the day to get this all finished. She has been such a huge help. I love the way it turned out. Simple but clean and a huge improvement from the dead dandelions that were there before.

I really can't believe how far along we've come with the landscaping. The south side of the house is now done, as is the front. The north side is done until we decide what we're doing with concrete for the driveway and a walkway to the backyard. The backyard is getting worked on next week... a new patio, a racetrack, two trees removed, etc. I'm hoping we can get it all done in a week. All in all, I think we're doing well.
