"It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like....SPRING"

Spring is just around the corner, I am SOOO ready!! One of the wonderful things about this season for me is getting outside and enjoying the DIRT!!! :-)

Two weeks ago my dad got our garden spot plowed!!

This year I wanted a little bit of a bigger garden. Mark was still at work when I made this decision (hee, hee). Saturday, when he was doing the hard part, he thought those rows were loooong. ;-)

This tractor has been in our family for's given lots of little children many a ride!! memories, memories......:-)

This Saturday he came back with the tractor and tilled it!!

Then the fun begins...we planted!! Beets, Onions, Peas, Potatoes, Radishes are all tucked in the warm soil waiting for a little bit of rain.

I didn't even have the camera out on our planting spree, we were just too busy enjoying it I guess. Karson got to sample lots of new things that day: dirt, the taste of seed potatoes, rocks, and who knows what else. He loved it outside!! Mark was a trooper and did the hard work while Khara and I (Kelsey and Kaden off and on:-), just dropped in the seeds.

Loving to finally enjoy the outside!!
Kaden found a frog that he thought was going to have babies.

After the way the frog was handled/dropped/squeezed, I'm afraid "was" is the keyword to her maternal state.

Karson was sleeping during the plowing day so he didn't make the pictures this time.

I'll leave you with one more beautiful picture:

Rich, Black, Soil!!!!!----oh, the potential!!! :-)

I hope you have a bountiful garden this year. We haven't even THOUGHT about gardening yet.

Looks like a ton of fun! I can already taste the good garden food! And I like the pictures of Kaden's frog - too funny!

Looks good! We are enjoying the warmer temps, too. We walked a mile after sundown last night, and it was so comfortable! I may try to grow a very small garden this year, but I'm barely home long enough to wash dishes and mop floors, so weeding, watering, and watching it grow can't be part of my daily routine! :)
