Summer and Butternut Squash

Today I started our summer and Butternut squash. Last year our supply of butternut squash we grew lasted us until winter, hopefully this year is the same.

Peach Blossoms

The peach branches the kids and I pruned off the tree a few weeks ago have started to bloom just in time for Easter.

Converting Lawn into Raised Garden Beds Without Waste

Converting Lawn into Raised Garden Beds Without Waste

Over at Garden Therapy they wrote a really nice article about putting some raised beds in your yard, going through all the thought processes of how to make them, what to put in them and how to maintain them. Enjoy.

Last night the kids and I started our okra down in the basement. This year we plan on growing 8 plants to hopefully give us enough to have decent harvests that we can use to cook up some of our southern meals we came to love while we lived in Georgia.

Preparing the Garden Beds

Added some compost and peat moss to the raised beds. Mixed it up and then some of the kids helped me mix it into the beds.
