Playing in the Dirt!

It is that time again, where I get out there and summer-ize the raised garden beds. They have been sitting dormant all winter and they were filled with weeds, pine needles and leaves.

I rack out all the debris on the top and then I start pulling the weeds. After that I hoe and break up the top layer of the dirt.

Then, I add new dirt.

Youngest grand girl was helping too.

We got a few things planted.

They don’t look like much now, but we got some sweet onion sets planted. Don’t tell Company though….he hates onions!

We got all the pots from last summer dumped out and we rinsed them out with the hose so they are ready to fill with dirt.

Oldest grand girl even made some DIY garden labels.

here is another one.

They are so cute they made me laugh!

I planted cherry tomatoes in my upside down planter.

Here is a bottom view.

Gee…I made a bunch of progress, but I still have a couple of more weekends of working on it to get everything planted and get them to look how I want them to look.

This picture is from last year.

I just need it to not rain long enough for me to finish. Then it can rain all it wants ; )

So ready to pick fresh veggies from the garden.

All in all we planted, spinach, lettuce, kale, chard, tomatoes (still have more to plant) sugar snap peas, onions, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts and we are not quite done yet. Some of the things are just for a spring garden and then when they are done, I will replant with something else.

We shall see, I did not do a spring garden last year.

But, I wanted to extend my growing and harvesting time from the raised garden beds.

I still am not sure what I am doing!

But….we do love to play in the dirt!

Happy Planting,


Here is just some random flower goodness!
