Grazin' In The Grass Is A Gas And Diggin' In The Soil Is A Toil

It's still a little chilly in SE Georgia for March almost April, but this is what we did today.

Started the vegetable garden!

Hubby planted Blue Lake Green Beans, Fordhook Lima Beans, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Straight Neck Yellow Squash and 6 Beef Stake Tomato plants. The garden should produce more this year because we spent more time preparing the soil with fertilizer and composed cow manure.

I also planted Giant Zinnia's next to the water hose, seeds left over from last year. So not only will there be food, there will be color.

Oh, and furry kids helped.

Sam (8 1/2 months)
"Throw it Mommy!? Huh? Would ya?!"

Jack (left) and Sam taking a breather from the
exhausting work of supervising a garden! *lol*

While Lucy, the one good dog, looks on ...

I'm also learning how to use my new Windows 8.1 HP Desktop computer. I finally gave up trying to "save" everything to an external hard drive. Starting over is just so much less drama.

I hope everyone had a lovely, happy Sunday. What did you do today?

Hi You Two! (and doggies too!) It was a gorgeous day to be outdoors. Your garden area looks great. I can't believe how the pups have grown. Just thinking about fresh veggies makes me hungry.
Wishing you a nice week.

It was beautiful here today also, and loved being outside. The pups are so cute and the garden will be great. Love what you all are planting...

I started my garden several weeks ago, but I had to use hardware cloth and 4 mil plastic. Mylants are finally beginning to grow. It's been so wet up here. It rained most the weekend. I would love sunnier weather right now.

the boys are so cute...love a Jack! Lucy looks to be an old girl, may her bones feel good in the sunshine. gardening...not hardly, snow storm brought YET more s.n.o.w. and ground is covered with bare patches of green showing. the only thing I'm going to plant are annuals because a garden would only take away precious time from prepping to sell. which, God willing, I hope is SOON.

Just wait until the JRTs decide it's fun to DIG in the garden...

@Monkeywrangler ~ Yeah, we thought of that! Steve put wooden stakes all along the bottom so they can't get in. Little rascals.

Thanks everyone for your always welcome comments. God bless! ~:)
