More Dirt....

Are you tired of all my unneccessary pictures of dirt and posts about planting?
Well.....too bad! That is pretty much what the extent of our weekend was spent doing so it's all I got ;) We did get a lot accomplished though. My peas are coming up nicely. No sign yet of the Easter Egg Radish, Carrots or Purple Top Turnips.
We got in, this weekend, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, sweet potatos, green bush beans, red bunching onions and Walla Walla onions. I was also able to plant my moonflower seeds - fingers crossed they germinate and grow nice and beautiful! I border some of one garden with Marigolds and the gaps I will fill with Nasturtium.

Here is a close up of the extra work the hubby was doing today on the 'new' fence in the 'new' 2nd garden. He took old grapevines and wrapped them around the posts. In this pic, the gate is open a tad.

Not the greatest pic, but here is one of most of the 'new' second garden. Oh yeah, I planted some mammoth sunflower seeds in the SE outside corner of this garden. *fingers crossed that these too come up!*

Here is my lovely row of Marigolds. Hubby saw this pic and continued to tell me that I am 'so queer'! I happen to think it is cool ;)

And, right before dusk I snapped this one so it is not the greatest either, but here is a shot of most of what was planted today.....cabbage, cauliflower, celery, broccoli, beans and sweet potatos.....ok, you cannot see it all in this shot ;)

And now.....*sigh* tomorrow is Monday :/ I am so sad to see this weekend go! Perfect Weather and nowhere to be! Bu-bye wonderful weekend!!

I am not tired of your planting progress at all. It interests me because you are so much farther north than we are here in Arkansas. Food is impotant.

You are doing an awesome job! And that fence is so pretty. Sigh.
