Sadly, this blog is a bit sleepier than I'd like these days. Pop over here if you'd like to know why.

How Does Your Garden Grow? Part 2

So much gardening has been happening here at The Homestead. It's wonderful. I've spent at least 20 hours digging, weeding, planting, and watering over the past 2 weeks.

We now have a seeded vegetable garden started in the greenhouse full of carrots, basil, cucumbers, and tomatoes, plus a seedling vegetable garden full of romaine, spinach, green beans, peas, and zucchini. And... tons of flowers. Snap dragons, daisies, nastursiams, sweet peas, cosmos, black eyed susans, begonias, etc. It was a planting frenzy last Saturday. On top of all that, we moved around our pretty(ish) junk!

Here's an array of photos.

The vegetables.
Planted!

6 stalks of corn! (Notice the mowed lawn? We found a lawn mower at a garage sale!)

Hen and chicks.

Shoes

Rearranged junk!

It all ended with me looking like this:
