Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to all of the men and women (and their families!) who have sacrificed for our great country. My gratitude goes out to you.
Today my Mom and I worked in the back yard. You may remember from last year when I tried to make a garden with native Utah plants. That was great, until I neglected to water it… This year is different! My Mom encouraged me to grow a vegetable garden. A couple of weekend ago, we tilled the dirt, added steer manure and garden compost.
Today we went to Wal-Mart and got these veggies:
- Yellow Squash
- Spaghetti Squash
- Anaheim Bell Peppers
- Green Bell Peppers
- Banana Peppers
- Roma Tomatoes
We created a new pathway, and added bark chips to the garden. Combined with the new green leaves, it makes for a pretty color scheme. There are also two flowers with the vegetables. We bought a lavender plant (that already smells so good!) and for Mother’s day, my niece bought me a lily so they were planted alongside the veggies.
I am so excited for my little garden! I am also grateful for my amazing Mom. None of this would have been possible without her support 🙂
I look forward to the summer, and what this little garden will bring. Of course there will be updates, and in the mean time, send my little garden some positive thoughts!! ❤
