Garden Time!!

For over a month we have been prepping the garden space and seedlings.  Last week we had the garden space tilled by a guy up the road from us.  Yesterday was planting day!

Prior to getting dirty, I started a slow cooker with some Indian food.  We knew that we would be tired and have no interest in cooking dinner after a long day planting food.  I tossed the typical spices in with some cauliflower, chicpeas, and peas.

From there we got our shovels, rakes and seeds and headed to the garden space.  We went pretty fast, building rows and mounds while planting our seedlings and seeds.  It helped that we drew a map of what we wanted to do the night before.

 I can not begin to count how many seeds we planted.  It was unreal.  We only got about 70% of the space planted but it was a great start!  We got broccoli, spinach, kale, lettuce, cabbage, zucchini, summer squash, eggplant, carrots, red onions, sweet onions, cauliflower, kohlrabi, and bell peppers all got planted.  It was a full days work for sure.

After a long day we all came in and had an iced tea mixed with lemon-aid before eating the dinner we had so smartly been cooking all afternoon!  It feels great to have the goals that we made for this major move to Maine begin to come to fruition.
