Time To Plant The Garden

OK~ We finally had a nice day to plant our garden last week.  We planted some of this and some of that. Our garden is a family affair. Grandpa, Dad, and Grandson were all actively planting seeds.

And we have several rows that look like this.

It will be interesting to watch these tomato and pepper plants grow. Last year we had an abundant amount of tomatoes and peppers.

And then we had this assistant nearby.

For now we wait. Spring has taken a turn for sunshine and mild temps here in Iowa. Our apple trees got hit with a fairly hard freeze in April, so I'm not sure what we will get off of them in a few months. From radishes, to carrots, to onions; our Iowa garden will hopefully be full of color and in a few weeks. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?


  1. Awesome!! I hope you get lots of veggies! What's your favorite thing to make with them?

    I love planting zucchini squash! But we are not planting this year because we are expecting another year of drought-y weather.

  2. We love salsa! The sweetcorn patch is separate from this- and once August rolls around, that seems to be our meals of the day. Gotta love Good HomeGrown Iowa SweetCorn!


I always love feedback on my blog!
