My Motley Garden Crew

Suckers in hand, we cleared out the garden today to get it ready to till the soil.
I promise my children dressed themselves before my hubby and I woke up this morning. 
The full pull seems to be making a comeback.
More garden progress later. 
There is a gentleman coming to till it for me at a very fair rate of $15.00.
I need all the gardening tips I can get.
And apparently I need to go clothing shopping for my children.

I hope you are having a lovely Saturday.

I got a great laugh out of this picture of your kids. I think the best outfit is that of your oldest daughter. So glad to see some posts on your new blog.

What sweet kiddos! It's not how they dress that matters (for the record I think they look great), but that their hearts are willing to love and help!

GIrl! You should have called! I still want a piece of that garden....I bought the boots! :) HA! I ran the lake the other day and saw it was pulled. I love the clothes! Those are the outfits I ask Nolan if he wore his sign...the one that says, "My mom didn't see me before I left the house". :) LOVE IT!

It was so nice of you to come by and visit me. Hope you will come again. What a lovely family you have. Four of those rascals. You have some gorgeous flowers too. Love your containers. Hope you are having a good day.

$15!!! WOW! I can't even rent a tiller for less than $75 and then I have to schlepp it home, till it myself and then schlepp it back.

My only garden tip is plant things farther apart than you think you should, particularly squash and cucumbers. Also, if you aren't canning, plant several different types of tomatoes so you have early and late bloomers (tomatoes all summer.) Otherwise, you end up with 175 tomatoes over a three week period and then nothing! :( Believe me, I know this from experience. ha!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am enjoying yours. It's nice to have little helpers! My daughter comes up with all kinds of crazy looks - I guess it's good that they're creative. :)
