My parents came over this afternoon to help us plant our vegetable garden. Last fall, Thomas dumped the raked leaves from our lawn in the general area where we wanted the garden and earlier this week my father used a rototiller to dig the garden and mix in the leaves. He was also responsible for digging the holes.
My mother and Thomas planted asparagus, tomatoes, green beans, yellow beans, squash, peppers, broccoli, cucumbers, beets, carrots, Spanish onions and red onions. My mother also got a raspberry bush from a friend, which we’ve added and we already had plenty of rhubarb growing. And the herb gardening is still alive and growing (you can see the edge of the garden in the photo above, lower right corner).
I couldn’t help with the planting as I was on baby duty but I did manage to get some pictures of other things growing in our yard. All of these flowers were here before us, growing despite being neglected for a very long time.
