The Garden

Last year we did not plant a garden and I really missed it :(
So . . . . I was very excited this year to get one in. And, thanks to Jeff and his dad we did just that.

Jeff worked so hard at tilling it up and then his dad took Jeffrey to Mascaro's and got us a load of mulch. Mascaro's mulch is the best!!

We bought lots of different kinds of tomatoes, a tomatillo, squash, lemon cucumber, cilantro and two kinds of peppers. It's sorta small this year compared to in the past, but I love it and can't wait for a garden fresh tomato.

Jeff also built these super cool tomatoe cages for our tomatoes this year. The last time we planted a garden our poor little cages were not much help and he wanted something that would look great and work great too. I think they turned out awesome don't you?

Josh and Hayden helped us plant peas too. I had them start the peas about 2 weeks late but our efforts still paid off and we are getting lots of peas. The only thing is I don't really like the variety we got. What kind of peas have you planted in the past and loved? I usually love garden fresh peas.
