Getting Our Garden Ready

Now that Spring has sprung, we've been working hard to get our newly expanded garden ready to plant. So far, we've planted tomatoes, tomatillos, serrano peppers, carrots, butternut squash, cantaloupe, and green beans. Our strawberries are just now coming in full speed and Riley's having fun checking to see if there are any red ones every morning for our steel cut oats.

In Texas, I'm going to have to choose Spring as my favorite time of the year. Everything is beautiful right now.

Your garden will be amazing! I'm drooling over the cantaloupe! I doubt those would grow well here in the foggy Humboldt climate. Your flowers are gorgeous!!

Isn't Spring amazing? To see life blossom from the ground and trees after a cold winter is so refreshing!
