Garden Dreaming....

We got our garden planted today! Finally... Tim managed to get my boxes built and we were able to get some topsoil/dirt from friends.

I will try to post pictures soon --- we have 6 boxes (4 are 4x4, 1 is 5x5 and 1 is 3x3) with veggies, herbs and flowers. I am hoping we will have enough to eat/supplement our food budget and possibly some to sell at the farmer's market this summer.

We planted: Tomatoes, Basil, Spinach, Chard, Cabbage and Parsley.
Peas, Onions, Carrots, Squash, Zucchini, Asparagus, Strawberries & Cilantro.
Dill, Majoram, Thyme, Marigolds, Chives, and Radishes.
Beets, and I need to plant some Garlic, Brussel Sprouts for Tim, Mint, Oregano
& Lemon Balm. Flowers I scattered in one box so we'll see what comes up!

Sara and I also cleaned out the front flower bed today and put down some mulch and some border. I need to get some more of that. I'm hoping my Diana, Princess of Wales Rose will do well! (Ross planted it for me the other night).

I have beautiful pink peony's, blue and purple iris, lily of the valley blooming in the flower bed that was here when we bought the place and my pansies and gerbera daises are doing ok as are my geraniums.

Now if I wasn't allergic to KS it would help.....

Pictures soon!

I cannot wait to see the pix! I wish I had the time and money to do more than dream about a garden ;) Sounds dreamy! :)

Wish I could do the garden thing. My grandma always had an amazing garden and flowers. I did not inherit her green thumb. I promise not to breathe on your plants when I come visit. Can't wait to see pictures of your plants in bloom.
