My First Garden

I finally did it! I planted a vegetable garden. Every spring I say I am going to, but never do.  This year I finally did! Ok... I did have a great deal of help from my dad and husband, Jim. Especially with getting the plot ready. Thanks guys :)

Ready for planting! I did help some with digging up all the grass, roots, etc. in my defense i had just knocked a chair over on my toes so i was wounded! I did make sure the boys were hydrated while working in the hot sun.

The planting part was fun! And much easier. My dad even bought me a little purple hoe. Ha, he didn't realize it was a kid's hoe when he bought it, but I love it.

Jim put in the tomato plants. There were lots of big rocks to break through.

I put in the zucchini plant. It's hiding behind the tomatoes. 

Next is two pepper plants and a cucumber plant.

Then I did a few rows of carrot and radish seeds. I heard these are tough to grow but they are two of my favorite veggies so i wanted to try anyway.

We found strawberry plants at the local garden center and thought they would be fun to try to. They got planted in the flower bed.

Lastly, my lettuce pot. I have done this before and is very easy. Almost impossible to mess up. ALMOST! Ha

I will admit i often kill plants :( I tend to neglect them and forget to water them... Not this time though! I am determined!!

Wish me luck!!


  1. I won't let you kill it. I want those peppers!!

  2. Aww, I love your garden! It's so cute! I think it is going to be EPIC! I planted one this year too. I planted rhubarb, lettuce, cukes, tomatoes, zucchini, and peppers! Hopefully it all grows ;)
