This past Monday (May 17th) Jim, Charlotte and I were home suffering from pure weekend exhaustion.  We spend the entire morning catching up on sleep and laying low.  Later in the afternoon we felt it necessary to tackle the jungle we were calling a yard and get our plants into our already tilled up garden plot...6 hours later we were just as exhausted as when we began our recoop day but at least we were done!

Charlotte and Petey playing in the yard

 Oh my...what big teeth you have.

Charlotte helped my plant....sort of...

After Jim was finished mowing he ran and got us dinner and we ate picnic style on a blanket in the freshly cut grass.

Charlotte thought my salad lid was a rocking cool toy.

And now for the main event...THE GARDEN!
We planted:  Beefeater Tomatoes, Sweet Red Tomatoes, Jalapenos, Seranos, Bell Peppers, Sweet Red Peppers, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Pumpkins, Watermelon, Cucumbers, Potatoes, and Sweet Potatoes.

Whew!!  Big? Yes, but we have the space and the motivation so why not?!  We'll keep you posted on it!
