A day spent in the garden.....

Yesterday was pretty blissful! I was so excited to spend the day in the garden and outside working in the yard. It was warm but not a scorcher and we enjoyed working together as a family! Here are some shots I took of my garden, so far I am so happy with the progress. This is my first year gardening and I am totally hooked.

I had my middle mister "help me" plant some seeds. I don't think we are too late, I hope not!

Any guesses on what we planted together?

I hope that we get some big ones by Halloween! I want a whole bed full of these next year! Actually that is true of pretty much everything I have grown so far. I want more next year. I also planted some okra, but that was after my little helper scampered off. I guess the gardening bug has bit me. In the next picture you can see where we tilled this year under the black plastic. We ran out of money for fencing material though so hopefully next year all that area will be garden.

Yeah! A tomatoe, I can't wait until this baby turns red! It is off of my Early Girl plant.

Ohhh, my eggplant seems to be doing good too, I LOVE eggplant and can't wait to watch them grow in my own garden!

This is my favorite picture of the day. My two little men walking up to the house from the garden. And no, I don't let him run around naked all the time, just on Saturday. ha ha.

  1. Hey Kelly! I am super jealous of your beautiful garden! That is one of the crappiest things about living in hot AZ is that gardens are super hard to grow. Great job on planting one, it will be so fun for your kids, and super healthy as well :)

  2. Pumpkins are SO fun to grow! I love growing the Sugar Baby Pumpkins for pies/pumpkin puree. Your garden looks great, especially for your first year!

    Thank you for linking up to Frugal Gardening 101. Would you mind including a link back to one of the host blogs so your readers can check out all the other gardens? Hope you join us again next week. :)

  3. What a beautiful garden! Too funny about the little bottom. :-)

    I planted 3 eggplants myself this year. We'll see how they turn out! It looks like you'll get yours alot sooner than we will get ours.

    Great blog!
