New Pictures of the Garden

Have you ever seen a bigger parsley plant than this? I had Riley stand in front of it to show how tall it is. He is just shy of 4', which would make this parsley plant over 5' tall. (And that is spearmint next to it...which we can't stop from growing. It smells so wonderful and makes a yummy moroccan mint tea for us on a regular basis!

The boys trimming and doing garden work.

Yard work is REALLY fun when you've got motorized equipment to make things easier. Forget the shovel and wheelbarrow when you've got access to a Bobcat!

The boys love riding with Papa. The way we figure it...with all of the driving experience Riley gets every day, he'll be driving completely on his own (around the farm) by 8 years old.

And the boy sure pulls his weight around here...if it involves dirt, Riley is all about helping.

13 tomato plants and 2 tomatillo plants

Sugar snap peas, lettuce, swiss chard, potatoes, onions, radishes, broccoli, cabbage, and scallions

The whole 9 yards.

It's all so huge!!! I have a few things planted now, some is about half an inch tall, some has yet to even come up. You're right about everything being bigger in Texas! Does it seem like a lot of work for you to put up this year with a new little one coming soon? I'm sure you'll be fine. You can handle anything.
