You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt

The garden is growing! Praise the Lord! I am always looking for more ways to save money on our everyday spending so this year we planted (or Blake planted) a vegetable garden. I am hoping to get a lot of tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, beans, peas, carrots, and corn. We are going to make pickles with the cucumbers from using Granny's recipe. I have not ever done anything like this so this year is our learning process. We plan on canning the tomatoes so we can use it all year long. Here's a shot of it all. We are going to expand greatly next year!

Here are the starts of the purple whole peas.

Blake and Bryce are looking at the tomatoes. Well, maybe just Bryce is. I think that Blake is trying to get some sort of bug away from him.

Here are our cucumbers and they are everywhere!

Some pea pods

And my favorite....a little Bryce on a tractor! I could just eat him up!

There wasn't too much to do this weekend. We had very scattered showers and had to get outside in between storms. At least everything is so plush and green!
