Working the Garden

Remember last week I said that we had spent the weekend working in the garden?  Here are a few pictures I was able to snap of the kiddos helping.  
Last fall, we covered the garden with cow manure we were able to get from a neighbor that stopped to buy eggs.  They said we were welcome to it, but we had to shovel and haul it!  We also spread some straw and manure from the chicken house on the garden this winter.  Doug was having a little difficulty getting the tiller through the thick spots of straw, so he asked Dallas and Reba to spread it out.

You know how every job needs a supervisor?  Apparently, Reba self-appointed herself to that role!
After a couple trips to Rural King, we were able to plant broccoli, radishes, spinach, carrots, beets, cabbage, and onions.  Unfortunately, I killed the plants of tomatoes and broccoli we tried starting in late February.  Doug and I think they didn't get enough water while in our greenhouse, so they fried.  Live and learn...right?

Until next time....
