my great idea.

i went to home depot for a strawberry bush.
i remember picking them in elementary school from stacie's yard in the summers.
crouching down and gorging ourselves on them.
there were never as many as i wanted.
whether it was the birds or the fact that stacie had 4 other siblings,
i don't know.
i just remember loving it.
so i decided to be ambitious and throw in some green beans,
sweet baby tomatoes,
pumpkins,
sunflowers,
and cucumbers.
we'll see how it goes.
i think i'm definitely in over my head.
espeically since i only bought one bag of soil.
which from the picture above, and how LeRoy at home depot told me i needed to space all of the different vegetables apart, is obviously not enough soil.
i'll for sure be needing to go back for some more.
i still have to go back for my tomato cage things and green bean fence.
we just didn't have enough room in the car.
with the stroller.
the ladder we've been saying we were going to buy since oct.
and two kids.
let the gardening games begin!
i have no idea what i'm doing.
this reminds me of crocheting.
and quilting.
have mercy.

Hooray for gardens! One day we will be able to have a real garden and not one done in flower pots!:) Good luck with it all, can't wait to see the pics of all the delish stuff you grow!

One thing I know for sure: the tomatoes are easy.

I know, because even I can grow them!

It's kind of exhilarating though, isn't it? Gardening. Not knowing what you are doing, but what little green sprouts start peeking through the dirt, that feeling is so darn good! Good luck with your garden!
