Planting Time!

By Cindy Kennedy | Garden

I know I'm a little late getting my Spring planting up and running, but first I had to wait for the heat wave to pass, and then for DH to turn the beds over for me.

Finally today, I got in and got dirty! All of the 4 veggie beds are at least partially planted, and the front garden bed along the fence is fully turned over, limed & Epsom salted, and almost all of it is planted at long last.

Here's a quick run-down of where we're at as of today. (Photos below)
