Good thinking getting a jump start on your garden-I'm not really doing that since I thought the two kitties would mess around with the plants-but maybe I should try anyway. I do have a vegetable garden, but I try to keep it quite simple: squash, tomatoes, zucchini, cukes and sometimes eggplant or pumpkins.

Happy Earth Day Sarah! My little plants are coming along too...yours are a lot bigger than mine. But I guess you are closer to putting them in the ground than me. I love having a garden...



Looking forward to sharing in your gardening journey! I would love to have a garden, but have never done it and feel somewhat intimidated about the whole thing!

As far as raising chickens, I think they are one of the easiest animals to raise once they are past the chick stage. They require a lot of attention at that fragile time. But once they get about 8 weeks, the job gets easier. They do need a predator proof shelter to roost at night, however. My first venture into chickenville was with 12 barred rock chicks! They can be very entertaining!

We'll be vegetable sisters.


I want to plant a small garden this year. Hubby is not motivated.......... yet.

We're going to "Race for the Cure" this weekend. I'll be thinking of you. :)

I planted my tomato plants last night. They join the spring peas, cabbage, pole beans, & spinach I already have in. The Richmond south side farmers market starts in two weeks, can't wait. I'm really jonesing for some fresh veggies.

Your pictures are really making me jealous. If I take a picture of a tomato plant, it looks like a tomato plant. When you take a picture of a tomato plant, I want to go start a garden.

It seems like every day was earth day on the farm, always something to do even if you did not love doing it. I loved living on the farm and to have the freedom of being outside most of the time, living with nature. I think I got my intense love of flowers from my grandmother. Your father taught me to can the first summer we were married and I am still at it.

I think it would be really nice to have a vegetable garden.
I think they taste so much nicer than shop brought.
Your childhood garden memories sound fun.:-)


You guys got into tomato fights when you were younger?? Noo, I never would have guessed, living with Coleman and John and Andrew. My guess is Coleman started it all. ; ) Love you Coley-man! :)
