Sowing and Sawing

In typical ADD fashion, we started the weekend with one project in mind, which we started, only to get sidetracked by another project or two.  But really, those other two projects were things we needed to wrap up.  The first was the never ending treehouse project, which we almost got done. I will post about that once it is entirely finished (Or read about our weekend working on it here).

After spending all day Friday working on the treehouse we decided to quickly plant the garden--after all, we had bought the plants and had some we'd been growing from seed all ready to be planted.  So as the sun was setting we ran around our now neat and tidy garden boxes tilling up the earth and planting lettuce and broccoli, spinach and cauliflower, tomatoes and peppers, basil and pumpkins--to add to the other herbs, potatoes, onions, strawberries and blueberries already planted.

There was only one thing left to plant, but it required a little construction.

So Saturday we woke up bright and early and started building the second tuteur (the first of which we built two weeks ago). Here's a quick snap shot procession of the process:

I had planned on planting beans on one and snap peas on the other but the family asked for just snap peas.  I obliged, but I kind of wish I had done beans on one.  Fresh beans from the garden are yummy--but I planted bush beans last year and they didn't eat them well (of course, I didn't often remember to pick them before they were too big!).

I can't wait for all those lovely vegies to grow in.  I am particularly excited to see the vines creeping up the tuteurs.

What are you planting in your garden this year?
