Our First Garden
Last weekend, Mr. Rochester's parents came to visit and helped us put in our very first garden! Ever since we moved here last year and were able to rent a house (instead of living in another apartment), we've been talking about how we want to put in a garden for the summer. And we finally did! Although, I will admit that I didn't do much to actually help putting in the garden. Mr. Rochester and his dad did most of the work. We were able to plant all sorts of vegetables like peppers, squash, tomatoes, beans, and cucumbers even though it is a little late in the season to begin--we're just glad to at least try to have a garden. Here are some pictures from the planting event.
Check out the dirt on my gloves--evidence that I helped a little. Oh, and don't mind my mismatched, snug-fitting clothes. Since the garden day, I've started wearing Mr. Rochester's shirts and shorts around the house so mine don't fit so snugly.
Since last weekend, the seeds we planted have actually sprouted little green shoots. I know we'll have to wait awhile for any vegetables but I can't wait to eat them in a few months!
