This is the before of our garden after it is DE-grassed and tilled and rows have been plotted. and a few pictures of the veg tables we planted.
Lots of work but well worth it in the end! Hubby is out right now putting up a fence around it and I will post more later on the final and finished product.
Back to cleaning and cooking. Hope everyone has just as good of a day as I have had. It is beautiful and I love the Lord for all he has allowed me to accomplish.

Gardening and sewing

Well we started tilling our garden yesterday and got a good bit tilled and racked but we still have some grass to remove which we will work on today and tomorrow and hopefully I can get all my veg tables in the ground on Saturday. :) very exciting! I'm reading some things on canning tomato cause I plan on making my own diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Lots of work but will be well worth it when it's all said and done so I'm not looking at the now I'm looking at the future when I can say I'm glad i did this.

The pastors wife at the church I attend is teaching me to sew on Thursday nights. We started last week with first night and she taught me how to measure and cut out the patterns and tonight we will be working on sewing the dress. This is really fun and i think I might get good at it and go on a sewing frenzy! Oh the plans I have. I'm gonna make me some aprons first chance.

Well back to cleaning then im gonna try and get outside and rack the garden some more.

Things going on.........

Not much different each day except taking care of my home and children as I love.

Yard work has officially started hubby and I mowed and cleaned up the yard yesterday and we will begin tilling our garden this weekend.:) I'm really excited about that. Hopefully everything grows well and I can tend to it's needs...I will post pictures right after we have everything in ground. I did a garden last year which was my first and it went alright but i learned alot through my experience and from others so I'm hoping it will go alot better this time around. I am planting Cucumbers, Green Beans, Peas, Okra, Bell peppers, Jalapenos, Acorn squash, Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Tabasco peppers and basil.
