as I went down to the garden.....

It is that time of year folks, it is garden time!  We Grants love this time of year.  We scout the weather meticulously to make sure that no more frost is coming our way.  We have the bebe gun all pumped full of pellets in case some bird has their eye on our little tomato plants.  The horse manure has been spread, the ground as been tilled, and the rows have been hoed (?), the plants are in!  After much begging on my part Worth has finally let me have some access to some rows and I can plant my beloved pumpkins.  I thought he wasn't going to waiver on this, he says they take up too much room, I say it is my joy.  Was he willing to let my joy be tossed away with the compost, nope, not my man!  Lets me honest though, this is really his garden.  He plants, he tills, he hoes, I just go out and observe and pick the fruits of his labor!

Have I mentioned BellaRose's obsession with water before?

I thought you were talking gardening here....

Hey, pumpkins do take a lot of room, but the pies are Worth it.

We can plant here in a week or so.

That looks like such a perfect day! Since we're moving to the beach our yard is sand (literally), so I'm going to make a multi-pot garden. We'll see how that works out, but your tilled earth looks so good to me. I think I can actually smell it!

Oh, I need some gardening tips from you. I'm going to have to call. My backyard is just begging me to put a garden in. I'm so jealous of yours!!

Seth and Worth are so much alike! He is all about the whole garden and I just sort of help out a little and mainly watch. I love that he has such a green thumb.
