Gardening and such

We planted my garden today! 
I love gardening. Well, the planting part anyway, the weeding kills me but that's what kids are for right?

Deacon enjoys planting too. He is such a helper.

We planted four varieties of tomatoes (mmm salsa!), cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, strawberries, many varieties of peppers both sweet and hot, two varieties of basil, cilantro, chives and watermelon.
We should be set for the summer!

I found this variety of basil called cinnamon basil and it smells amazing! Basil is by far my favorite herb. I can't wait to make pad thai with this!

Miss Abby got in on the action. 

And I am so excited about the new fire pit Kevin is building me!
He got off to a great start today.

I decided blackberries are straight from Hell!
 How can such yummy berries come from such a wicked plant?

Ouchy! Darn blackberries!

Have a great weekend!

Blessings, Nicole
