Isn’t he adorable? I just love this man and that he is super handy and understands that I love a garden, but he is usually the one that does the hard labor, well cooking is hard labor too right? Maybe not, but typically I let him know how I want to do the garden he gives me his advice, I plant and then he keeps it up.
It’s not that I do not like gardening or that I do not want to, trust me, I am beyond excited. I have a horrible fear though, of those things that slither around on the ground and can be spotted in the garden. If I see one it’s likely I’ll faint…and possibly pee my pants. Yep, true.
It’s a fear that has left me gardening from the side lines or in my planters that are high above ground, like my herb garden.
Once the fruit and veggies though are growing, I pick them, clean them, and cook with them.
We once had a pear tree. The pears fell to the ground, she ate them…we smelled them. I will leave it at that.
Now, that we have the garden built, my husband tilled up the 8×8 area and now we are just planning to add some more soil then get to planting!
