New Home Favorites: Have Dirt Will Plow

Tonight's picture in the series on my favorite parts of the new house features the garden we planted today. Our next door neighbor plowed it a few weeks ago and we've been waiting for the perfect afternoon to get it planted. Today I raked it, hoed it, raked it again, and then the whole family got out to plant a ton of crops. If only half of it makes it to full growth we will have more than enough to feed the whole block. Just check out the list of what was planted:

*Two rows of cumbers
*Two rows of okra
*Seven tomato plants
*Two rows of green, hot, and salsa peppers
*Two rows of petite and rainbow carrots (Adam had to have rainbow carrots)
*One row of yellow squash
*One row of zucchini
*Four strawberry plants
*Two rows of sunflowers
*One row of cantaloupes
*Two rows of watermelons

Next week I'm thinking about planting an herb garden next to the house.

I'm tired just thinking about all the work that went into it. It's been three days and my back is still jacked up
