From Road Apples to Love Apples - Part 1

As if there will be a part 2 or 3. I'm not exactly staying up on the blogging in a reliable fashion lately. However, I have a new love. No, I haven't replaced Sweet Babboo - in fact, I married him and we moved to a new house with a big backyard. A lot can happen in three years it seems.

So, I am now a gardener. At least I will be when I pick the seeds out and get them in the dirt.

We have prepped two beds for this year and I am hoping to increase it, but I was trying to be realistic for my first try at veggie gardening. My dad did this when I was a kid - it can't be that hard - right?

First step was tearing out a rotten bed and remaking it. Then the free dirt from one friend and FREE POOP from the nearby stables. Nothing tells me how boring I've become like the way I get excited over FREE POOP. We're gonna have good dirt though. I'll try to get a photo of the finished poop deck in soon. Like before the veggies are taking over. Really, I'm gonna try.

Thanks to the only friend who will probably ever read this for her fabulous free dirt. Air kisses to you. I'm loving my dirt.
