I planted the vegetable garden today.
Three years ago on the Saturday before Mother's Day, my husband spent the entire day building my vegetable garden. The garden is approximately 20 ft in length, and 5 ft in width, and raised about 6 inches from the rest of the yard. It is bordered with beautiful natural stones that Tim harvested from an old wall in the woods. Perfection.
Every year, on Mother's Day my youngest and I shop for the vegetables. We always plant tomatoes, pumpkins, and jalapenos. The rest is done on a whim. Favorites of years past have been Cubanelles, eggplant, and spaghetti squash. We always change it up, and have a good time while we shop!
