working in the garden and....

Working in the garden every day now that the weather has turned lovely.
Our vegetable garden has been in now three weeks and already the
green onions are ready to pick.

I put in tomatoes,peas,corn,carrots,swisschard,spinach,leaks,sweet onions,basil,
egg plant,sweet peppers,zuccini,cucunbers,chives, pumpkins and sunflowers.
That should keep us going for awhile.

Today my grandaughter was over and we made a garden man.

While visiting Debbie @ Confessions of a Plate Addict she had a great tutorial ,
on how to make a garden man.

So we gathered my pots, twine, corks,and a long stick and began to make
a garden man.
We added some plants from the garden for his hair.
We think he turned out just great.

We had time to clean out the pond since the birds have been busy
taking baths.

If you look closely you can see the fish.
Have a great week!
until next time, Happy Gardening!
