can ya dig it?

I have never before had a vegetable garden. We are working on starting one this year. So far it's been fun except for the digging and the centipedes. I hate things with more than 8 legs. That's just not necessary. Ick. Well, at least I'm not afraid of llamas. That would be lame.

Digging is hard work. Those of you who have seen me in person realize that I am not interested in physical labor of any kind. The promise of food keeps me going, but I doubt very much that we will have a brownie vine or a bacon tree in our garden.

What we are planting will be tomatoes, corn, onions, garlic, peppers, and maybe one or two other things. We pick up our plants from the fundraiser any time after MayDay. MayDay! MayDay! I've started a garden and I need help doing the actual work!

Extra rambly today but it's been a fun day with Pee Wee's bday party and seeing my old budy Foop, getting some digging done, dealing with dd's temper tantrum - lots of those lately - and even squeezed in a short nap between losing DS chess games (ok, one stalemate), plus I cooked dinner - from the freezer, of course.

I'm not very good in the dirt, either, though I love flowers and trees. The girls want a little veggie garden this year, and I think we'll start one next weekend. Myself, I'm more of a "plant it and let God take care of it" kind of gal, but for the sake of some fresh tomatoes and pea pods, I'll do some tending.
