Garden Work

This past weekend we spent most of our time in the garden.  It started with Daddy and Dallas tilling the soil
Luckily, we had a great supervisor on the job site!
Then, the boss got restless and Big Sister had to help out
Dallas also tried to work the planting wheel, but then decided to give that job back to Daddy!
Our supervisor was pretty tuckered out on the second day...
All in all, we planted onions (both sets and seeds), tomato plants (cherry, roma, and early girl), bell peppers (red, green, and yellow), chile peppers, green beans (top crop and blue lake), radishes, leaf lettuce, spinach, carrots, snap peas, kohlrabi, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, pickling cucumbers, eating cucumbers, watermelon, cantaloupe, and zucchini.

Since the kiddos did a great job helping, we celebrated with a trip to Dairy Queen.
The kiddos love these starkiss bars
Doug and I love how they turn the kiddos tongues funny colors!

Until next time...

I would have help too, knowing that you get to go to DQ.

I know Christy, I agree, nothing like ice cream. And all those vegies sound good too. You sure have good help in that garden.
