Overachiever!

May 3, 2013 in family , Gardening

If you know Shane, then you know he is really good at a lot of different things.

But when it comes to gardening he’s become quite the overachiever….

some may even consider him a bit of  a show off!!

I really just have to laugh everytime he brings in another basket full.

I have been cooking and eating as much as I can and we still have enough for about 20 more families!

And perhaps I am a little biased, but I sure do think he has the cutest garden assistant ever!

    Wow! I am just getting ready to start a small garden, does he use mulch on top of his soil? So great to be able to grow your own food, I enjoy your blog.
    Blessings,

    Yea Fran! I hope you and Bob are doing great!

    @Sharon: I use mushroom compost… LOTS of it! This year was my second 50 yard truck load. We are also creating a lot of compost from kitchen scraps, and I am seriously considering a few chickens to help speed up the process.

    @natalie: Yes. I started planting seeds mid January. I kept my seedlings protected in a great little pop up greenhouse from Home Depot. I tried to plant a new round every 2 weeks so I could stagger my yeild. I got really lucky and timed my transplanting perfectly! When my first round of squash and zuchinni finish I will replace them with the sweet potatoe slips that I just started in the window.
    The lettice is about to come out now and be replaced with sweet bell peppers. Gotta have a plan!… or not. Whatever. Ha!

    Oh my goodness! You might need to offer a zucchini with each photo shoot! So happy to have stumbled onto your blog. You took shots of our (now 9 year old) Lilly, when you and Shane first moved from Texas. Your success is well deserved!
