gardening boy

tis the time of year...
where the winter fades and the spring gardening gets started.
This year we have another little helper alongside the hubby and I....
B has decided he wants to "help" plant beans.

This weekend we built two shade trellises for cucumbers to grow up and for lettuce to grow from under.  We used PVC pipe so that we could dismantle it and reuse it each year.... and once the starts come forth we will use garden wire to train the vines to trellis.  Much like this one....

see what we did!
the cucs will grow up the PVC, and
the lettuce will grow from underneath
The chickens have been given their little space around the coop in the back of the garden... but one little devious one- keeps finding her way out (even with her wings clipped!)... she continues to keep us on our toes.
the sneaky one!
So we have gotten our starts out from the greenhouse and have given them space to grow.  Carrots, onions, spinach, tomatoes, beans, peas, lettuce, cucumber, zucchini, squash..... and herbs.  Oh goodness!!!! It is Spring!
peas~ yummers!
devious garden destroyer #2


  1. I'm looking forward to a day in the garden today - in the rain! Our devious garden destroyers are locked in for the summer...winter they get the whole garden...for now the veggies are out of bounds! Or thats the plan anyway!...

  2. It is an exciting time of year, isn't it? For us gardeners?? I wish I could entice my daughter in to the sunlight but she prefers the indoors..... :)
