Ruth and I went to Walmart and picked up plants, dirt and tools to create a small garden - which ended up being a bit bigger then we had planned but it all worked out - just take a look below.
|Ruth helping me to get the soil de-weeded and ready|
|Isn't she just too cute!|
|As you see we have one large box to the left and one smaller one off to the right|
|Ruth helped me mix in the soil mixture but when it came to adding the cow poo, she said nope|
|This is the bigger box, it holds zucchini, summer squash, watermelon & honeydew|
|Ruth changed to her swimsuit to turn off the sprinkler|
|as you can see we added two new sections to the left, one holding pumpkin and the other housing spaghetti squash. The smaller box holds pear tomatoes, sugar peas & strawberries and off to the right of it is a smaller almost non existent onion patch.|
|She's daddy's girl and was tickled pink to see that daddy loved her garden 'cause it's hers now, at least in her mind it is...lol|
|Ruth wanted to show Myrna the dandelion puffs|
|MJ loved 'em|
|And then Ruth was done and telling me to get her 'cause she wanted to go eat ice cream...lol|
BTW we have basil & mint right outside the back door of the house too.
