Gardens, Bees, Seeds and Trees

Yesterday, I asked you to guess what we did. Here’s some hints…

Drama King has been covered in mud head to toe. Tim wore a hat for the first time in … oh, I dont’ know, forever maybe. Little T has had more baths in a weekend that any other weekend in his life.

Muddy BootShoes are dirty. Water hoses may have been used to clean our muddy children’s feet.

Did you guess?

So this weekend, we planted our first crop. And we planted a lot. And multiple varieties of most of these:

  • Pepper
  • Tomato
  • Squash
  • Onion
  • Corn
  • Carrot
  • Cucumber
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Radish
  • Peas
  • Parsnips
  • Lettuce
  • Dill

Soon we’ll be planting some herbs to sit on the kitchen porch so we can add fresh herbs to our food.

Oh, and have I ever mentioned that our neighbors across the “street” have a hive of bees? Those little guys surely figured out that some of our trees are budding because the bees have been over every day by the hundreds gathering nectar. And we get to eat that wonderful fresh local honey because our landlords are friends with our neighbors. I can’t wait to taste the local honey here.

Did you pick a word for the year? What about a resolution? How are they going?Are you planting anything this spring?
