Our Garden is Finally Planted!

Monday, June 15, 2015

Our garden is finally planted...and growing!  I really didn't think that it was going to happen.  I can't tell you how worried I was.

We are always late with planting.  It seems like there is one thing or another that keeps us from getting our garden in on time.  Usually it is the weather.  This year there were other things as well that kept us from planting. One was that our tiller wasn't working.  But thanks to my handy husband, he got it going and got the garden tilled.

 Because I wasn't completely healed from my surgery, we did have a little help from my sweet mother-in-law.  She was more than willing to come over and help with the planting.  In fact her and my husband did the majority of the work.

I had lots of help

 What I was especially excited about this year was that I was able to plant some shelly bean seed that had been saved from plants that my grandparents had.  These seeds have been passed down from a couple of generations.  There was not much left and I was really nervous about planting them in case nothing came up.  But the thought of planting those beans was exciting at the same time. 

Shelly beans handed down from my grandparents.
In case you are wondering, shelly beans are similar to pinto or brown beans.  We cook them up in our family just like brown beans.  And they taste wonderful with a slice of cornbread.  Yum!

We also had help from the infamous Sox.  You remember the one that loved to get into my tomato seedlings?

And of course, there is only one way to plant a garden...

So tell me...

How does your garden grow?
