Humble Beginnings

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!! I spent part of my afternoon planting my garden..for me that is something that is fun...not work. I also knew it was suppose to maybe rain a bit so I wanted to get in some of my seeds before that happened. This is the picture of the garden.....nothing planted at this point!

Justin gave the boys a job...rock duty! They got $.03 for each rock! Here is Caleb filling up his bucket with rocks.
Then he would dump them into the wagon that was hooked onto Lance's 4-wheeler...then they hauled them to where I wanted the end of their work they both earned $1.50 for their work! They were happy!!

So here is a shot of me planting...Today we planted 5 rows of corn, 3 rows of green beans, 2 hills of cucumbers, a hill of watermelon, and a hill of pumpkins....also we added some sunflowers around part of the garden....Now we wait...the hard part! I am happy to report that we got a nice rain after we got the seeds in the ground. I still have more planting to do like tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, strawberries, and maybe some others. I also came to the conclusion that I need a bigger garden....I am pretty much out of room already.....
