We had some visiters to our garden this last week. Yes, this is one of the reasons we are building a fence and why we waited so long to get the garden in. I finally decided we had to get it in even though the fence is not in yet.
I watched as our unwelcome visitor took a bite out of my tomato plant! We tried our best to scare them away. They weren’t too impressed with our weak attempts, but they finally left.
Here is a close up of our garden. Yes, we just finished planting this last week and not a lot is coming out of the ground. Actually, I took these photos earlier this week and yesterday we actually had a lot of green showing, lots of plants starting to come up.
But here we have some cucumbers coming up. They were the first seeds that we planted to show themselves. We were very excited to see them!
Here are our tomatoes. I planted marigolds around the borders.
I planted some herbs in one end and on the other end. I want to plant another basil plant in that empty spot.
Not a lot of photos with the kids. I have to admit, when we go out to the garden it is hard for me to remember my camera. But, here is a blurry photo that shows evidence of them. Trucks and dirt are Karter’s new friends. I promise more kid photos next week.
On a side note, have you ever thought of what you are wearing when you garden. These ladies certainly did. I’m feeling very inspired to wear trousers and loafers out in the garden today.
