This year will be 'attempt to have a garden' effort ten. We are really trying to do it right this year. We will not let weeds overtake everything this time, oh no! We're really going to grow stuff!
We have a new spot we're trying out, the site of an old barn that we just tore down.
Hopefully it'll be fertile, and it's nice because it doesn't have grass already growing there (so we're one step ahead, right?)
The boys check out the site:
I thought it would be cute to take a pic of the twins in the wheelbarrow, but Reid didn't find this amusing at all.
Turns out Reid held a grudge over the wheelbarrow incident:
Chasing a few chickens:
Pierce was only too happy to pose in the wheelbarrow for me:
Cort found Daddy's gloves:
Reid helps us pick out rocks (of which there are many):
Happier times, Reid has finally forgiven me for the Evil Wheelbarrow, so long as I agree never to try that again:
And Cort 'drives' the tractor - after which he refused to do anything else BUT drive the tractor:
Wish us luck! Next up will be digging out more rock, tilling and rows, and then putting up a fence to keep out the deer and chickens. Then, assuming we make it that far, we'll be planting!
On Friday, I'll be linking this post to Farm Friend Friday, over at Verde Farm:
