Here we are planting our first garden in Texas. What an adventure. I had bought some tomato plants about a week ago, just couldn't resist. Then this morning my husband brought my two very sad looking tomato plants inside and said, "Dear did you forget about something?" I felt horrible. Since we had both finished are school semesters yesterday, it was time to get the garden planted.
I finished cleaning up from our usual Sunday brunch and my husband started working up the garden. A little while after I went out then our oldest daughter came out to pitch in. Finally, when we were nearly done for the day our youngest daughter also came out to help a bit.
I'm not one to force anyone into helping me with the garden, I was forced when I was young and I hated it. So, if they want to help fine, if they don't that is fine too. I like picking it and eating it myself way more than working the soil and planting it, but all in time. The wind was blowing like 40 to 50 mile an hour gusts today too. The temperature was a fabulous 87 degrees. We all got sunburns and enjoyed a job well done.
