I don't like veggies that much..... and wouldn't eat a tomato if someone paid me........ but I did sow some cantalope and watermelon seeds.........

I love gardening. Already started my garden. It's such a good way to ensure fresh veggies and a chance to get outside in the sun and fresh air.

I can't wait for time off to get the seeds in the ground

An hour spent in the garden puts life�s problems into perspective.
These are my thoughts exactly.

The kids' garden produced veggies for our supper last night. Spinach, lettuce and radish salad. So yummy. Even my 8 yr old said, "it just tastes so much better than store bought." And was she ever right! I love, love, love garden season!!!

8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you.
9 Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?
10 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

Wow! Great. So many gardeners with so many great sounding veggies and flowers. I live in the Bay Area in California. Last weekend was hot (80's) this week has been overcast (60's & low 70's). The weekend is supposed to be nice again. I started my tomatoes (1 regular "celebrity" and one heirloom, "purple Cherokee") "burpless" cucumber (thin skin) and Blue Lake Green Beans. emoticon

We are already eating cherry tomatoes and yellow banana peppers (plus various herbs) from our garden.

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

Garden all set up and ready for planting this weekend. Heading to the farmers market to get some fresh plants and planting tons seeds! Our strawberries are already starting to come in and we have a few that are turning red! Plus our grape vines, blueberries and raspberries are looking really healthy after the winter :)
