How Does Your Garden Grow?

Well, these pictures are also from a couple weeks ago,
but we're almost caught up now. So without further ado...

With the best Mother's Day present EVER in hand,
my helpers and I set off to finish up some of our last planting.

My helpers are easily distracted. I think they were
looking at a hawk sitting in a tree here.

And, not ones to stand still for very long, off they go
for some adventuring!

This one still does his adventuring all in
one spot still. Thank goodness!

And amidst our treks which filled pockets with special stones
and dandelion heads, finding new walking sticks/swords,
and running through the waist high grass to escape the 'lions'
we did manage to get these in the ground.

And this is what's growing in the top garden:


Beets

Bunching onions

Hoof prints...
Whaaaaaaaaaaaatt?!?!?
Yep, that's right, hoof prints right through the spinach and
lettuce. It's a good thing we only have a BB gun around here
because the neighbour's calves would be BBQ'd and on my
bun right now if I'd had anything else on hand!
Unfortunately, these holes seem to the the least of our problems
as all the varmints, critters and bugs in Wellington county have
decided to congregate in our garden this year. *sigh*
But, we'll save that for another post...

And some lettuce that managed to escape destruction.
This garden also has two different kinds of carrots,
swiss chard, tomatoes and peppers. We planted the beans,
more tomatoes and peppers, and a second planting of
carrots and beets in the bottom garden. And this year we put
our cucumbers and pumpkins out back behind the barn.
As soon as the rain clears up I'll get out and take some more
pictures. Sorry to all of you who don't get excited about
looking at pictures of veggies...you may want to skip reading
our blog for the next while, because this is what we do these days!
Although, our four helpers tend to keep things interesting,
so you never really know what you're going to get :)

With summer right around the corner, what are you
filling your days with? I'm excited to start having
some bonfires and wiener roasts..anyone interested?
