Our First Attempt at a Garden

Here is our 1st Garden:

 ...he tilled the land, she seeded the earth, together they watched the clay give birth....

My goodness look at all of that Geeeorgia Clay!  It has been raining for the past few days.
At least I know my little seeds are being well watered.  
I made a deal with the hubby last year:  If I do well with a garden this year, he will build me some pretty raised beds next year.  The thing is, after we spent so much time and energy on this dirt, I'd be hard pressed to leave it.   Something about hard earned dirt, I don't know....

I have high hopes and recipes for the upcoming growth.  Here is what I planted:

Green Beans
Okra
Corn
3 types of tomatos
Zuchinni
Yellow Squash
Cucumbers
Two types of lettuce
Cabbage
Onions
Broccoli
Carrots
Canteloupe
Watermelon

I still have some sunflowers, and herbs to plant.

I hope all goes well, I patted all of my little seeds and sent them some love, so that should do the trick, right?  We will see.

Anyone up for some watermelon margaritas this summer? 
Come on over.
