Do you remember in Genesis after Adam & Eve ate that stupid little apple?
God told Eve (and all women) she would experience pain in childbirth. I did that. With an anesthesiologist by my side. :D
God told Adam (and all men) that they would have to work the ground for their food and basically, it's not gonna be easy!
Well, get to it Honey! I let him use a tiller to ease his pain. :)
Might as well get the little guys working, too!
We found an entire tree stump underground, roots and all. That was loads of fun! (Sarcasm drips from monitor, right?) Then there's that lovely Mississippi clay that just wants to recompact as soon as you dig it up.
Eventually, we made it through! Here's our pretty new garden:
We'll have carrots, green beans, green peas, black eyed peas, Lima beans, yellow squash, Zucchini, Roma tomatoes, regular tomatoes, jalapenos, red chile peppers, bell peppers in three colors, mixed salad greens, and herbs. We're seeing little sprouts all over, and we just planted seed on Saturday. We transplanted the peppers and regular tomatoes.
This was NOT very frugal, I will admit. We had to get a lot of dirt and fertilizer stuff. We didn't own a proper shovel before this, either. I'm still hoping it will pay off in the end.
I can't wait to show you our harvest!
