When I was growing up my favorite day of the year (after Christmas) was “garden day”. Garden day was the day that we all worked together to get our gardens planted for the summer. I loved driving to the plant store with my Dad and buying all the vegetables and flowers. I was always allowed to create my own garden and learned so much by doing that.
This spring my husband surprised me by building a new raised bed for our vegetables. He really knows the way to my heart! Everyone worked hard to create the new space and in May it was ready to plant.
It was truly a labor of love.
Rain boots, pajamas…whatever you can find to wear (or not)!
We finally got a warm sunny day in May and it was time to plant!!
(It was SO hot that we had the sprinkler on…you know, just to run through in between planting rows)
Special thanks to my wonderful husband for working hard on this and teaching the kids about hard work and giving.
