What have we been up to?

Summer Gardening!

Step 1: Clearing the giant weed tree that somehow blew into my parents’ yard some years ago!  Boy was this hard work even with a chain saw!

Step 2: Leveling the ground and the garden bed

Umm… Step 3 & 4: Build planters and plant plants!  Woops… missed a few steps in my slideshow.  Must’ve been carried away with all the work!

Step 5: Clean up; many bags of the horribly annoying bermuda grass

Herbs: Basil, Cilantro, Oregano, & Catnip!  and summer squash.

Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, and Nasty Crawling Critters we found in the dirt

And the finished product:

Some found treasures:

Army men, slammers, and old trampoline springs were dug up in the process!  Fun!
