There I am, getting the soil ready to welcome the seeds. The original garden was pretty big, but we added about five feet, and put the fence around it. The original owners also apparently planted nothing but corn and strawberries, and let me tell you what: Strawberries are a mess to dig out once they get in cozy and comfy. Phew, that was a chore.
Hanna was a champion through most of this part:
And Hallie did a really good job sleeping through all the fun parts, and then she woke up to the drudgery of putting in seeds. Thank goodness we had her around to liven up that most dull of garden tasks.
I can't wait to meet you, little carrots, sweet peas, green beans, peppers, tomatoes, pumpkins, cantaloupes, raspberries, and the inevitable strawberry that escaped our grasping fingers.
