playing in the dirt


I'm loving having a garden! I can't wait until we get to harvest something. It seems like we've been waiting a long time already, since planting the first seeds about 7 weeks ago.

There's something magical, rewarding, and therapeutic about getting your hands in the dirt. It's wonderful.

I've worked on two gardens before but this is the first one that I've had any real ownership over. So it's just a little different.




More pictures to come! We've planted strawberries, lettuce, peas, tomatoes, sweet peppers, cucumbers, eggplant, catnip, and poppies. Only a little of each...the garden is about 30 square feet total.

It is FUN. I built a dome to cover ours (16 sq. ft.) b/c we're supposed to have hail today. I'd hate for my precious seedlings to get pulverized! You should come to the Conway courthouse tomorrow at 11:30 to take pictures of the CAFM BAM distribution. We'll be there getting our basket of fresh, Arkansas food!
