Our Garden 2012

Last Sunday the girls and Erik planted our garden.  In the past we have had a huge garden with a little bit of everything.  This year we decided that with Lucy and a (almost) toddler, we needed to tone it down a bit.  They planted tomatoes, zucchini, squash, cucumbers, hot and sweet peppers.  Erik also worked on moving the blackberries and raspberries and planted a few more blueberry bushes.  

 We love having the garden, but I know that by mid summer it will be a lot of work.  Luckily Ella loves to help out and she is great at picking tomatoes!  I'll spend more than a few afternoons putting tomatoes away but will be so grateful come December and January when I am making soup with fresh tomatoes!

I'll update later in the summer with details about how this garden turns out!
