I'm a sucker for springtime activities. I started spring cleaning a couple of weeks ago, and was overrun by the clothing alone for 5 kids! So I had a yard sale Thursday and Friday to eliminate some of the clutter - just when I thought I had it out, Ken brought home stuff we forgot we had in storage. Aack! Anyways, I used the profits from the yard sale to create a vegetable garden along our "Scrapppers Sidewalk". My step-dad came over and helped me set it up. The yard sale wasn't good enough for a nice brick retaining wall, lol, I'll have to have a few more. So a day's hard work and a few hundred pounds of peat moss, compost, and top soil later . . . I have approximately 75 square feet of garden. Now, I've only ever successfully grown squash and flowers, so this is a huge venture for me. We planted a little bit of everything - tomatoes, squash, lettuce, carrots, radishes, onions, cilantro, cucumbers, etc. (we don't even eat radishes, but Billy insisted we plant them) I can't wait to see what grows!
