We made a lot of progress in the garden on Sunday. Planted about 8 tomato plants which, I realize, could produce truckloads of tomatoes. Eeek. Also planted a variety of peppers, a couple of squash, beets, green beans, and radishes. The beets, green beans, and radishes are seedlings so I’ll post a pic of those when they sprout or look more interesting than a pile of dirt. I enjoyed planting so much I might do more in the next few weeks. Am thinking about adding a leafy green, carrots, and maybe zucchini???

Now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for…my gardening shoes! They’re Bogs. Oh you know…”the urban farmer clog”. Ha! I found them online after nearly breaking my ankle trudging around the yard in flip flops. I think they’re fabulous and certainly make gardening more enjoyable. They aren’t cheap, but I think having ankles in one piece and looking garden chic make them worth the investment.

I floored it out of the city last night like my hair was on fire. I like to get home before it’s dark so I can walk the yard and see what’s new. I was in the city all week so knew that there were some good surprises waiting for me!

I love the columbine…mom’s favorite flower and they remind me of her and the Ranch. AND THE ROSES! They’re just getting started and are in abundance! I don’t know what the deal is with the lilacs. They are not blooming like they should and wonder if the strange weather confused them. There are a few sprigs here and there which is better than nothing. I am so lucky to get to spend time here and enjoy it all.

I hope to start planting the veggies today…tomatoes, green beans, various peppers, and beets. Stay tuned because I know you’re going to want to see my gardening shoes!
