No Laundry Today!
When we first moved to our new home I noticed there was a vegetable plot in the back yard. I was so excited because I had always wanted to try my hand at growing vegetables. I had casually mentioned my desires a couple of weeks ago to Trey's Great Uncle Benny (78 years young) and Great Aunt Willa Mae (72 years young). Well, to my surprise this morning I got a phone call at about 8:30am. Uncle Benny said that if I didn't have plans today they would like to help me start my first vegetable garden!! I said "no plans here"as I tossed the laundry back into the laundry baskets! We had so much fun planting! I kept asking questions as we worked, but gardening comes so easy for them they just kept saying, "it will be fine". We planted Kentucky Wonder beans, Improved pinto beans with corn, round peas, straight neck yellow squash, okra, cucumbers, tomatoes (different varieties), bell peppers, and zucchini squash. I have 8 rows all together! While I am so excited--I'm also wondering "what did I get myself into?" Stay tuned to the adventures of vegetable gardening !!!!
