gardening

My husband and I are planting a garden! Like, a for real garden. One with veggies and stuff.

It’s a long, slow and painful process, but I’m stoked on having some home-grown goodness.

We’re not quite to the planting stage yet though, we’re at the spend hours/days/weeks out there trying to do to the soil whatever it is you have to do to it in order to get to the planting stage. And we’re doing it the old-fashioned way. With a spade shovel and a pitchfork.

Which certainly wasn’t my idea, but whatever.

We have help though, so that’s nice. My pops-in-law maintained a veggie garden for years at his place, but he’s given up on his own this year in hopes of pursuing…other gardens…I guess…? He’s in the process of helping a friend with theirs and helping us with ours, so it would appear that way.

And so my other half may, or may not have, mentioned something about someone being a garden hoe ho.

Maybe.

  1. Haha…garden ho…nice…original…mature…I'm doing my first veggie garden this year too…so excited. Husband is shocked every time he looks at my seedling tray and things are actually growing…granted, he grew up in the city, but shouldn't he know that things will grow if given soil, water, and sunlight? Geez!

  6. Garden! How beautiful! Take some pictures and show us how you're doing it. I've never had a true garden before (the tomato my dad let me plant INSIDE that grew a tiny green leaf then died doesn't count. no seriously.) Good luck!
