Sowing the Seeds..

I actually made it out into the garden yesterday. I tried really hard not to get my foot dirty, which is difficult in tilled dirt! Mom, Dad and I pulled ourselves up by our boot straps and planted some pepper plants(many varieties), tomato plants, bush beans, squash, zucchini, climbing spinach and cucumbers. I will take pictures when they start sprouting and get settled in. We still will plant some different varieties of tomatoes, okra, corn, more beans, watermelon and cantaloupe. I am so excited!! Dad, bless him, tilled up some more soil last night. After getting some plants into the ground it was obvious that we could use some more space. I think that the corn and okra will go in the lower garden. We shall see.

Speaking of vegetables, I stopped by Burger's Market today. I grew up going to this place a bit off of the beaten path(Canton Road in Marietta). Mom has brought me a few cantaloupes from there lately. They are as sweet as candy! I stopped by today to pick up some more and couldn't resist the prettiest okra, squash, potatoes and of course the cantaloupes that I went for in the first place. Oh yeah, I also got bananas, grapes, and a beautiful tomato, all for a really reasonable price. We are having some friends over on Tuesday and I had been planning on grilling dinner. Now I think it might be my favorite meal of all time- fried okra, creamed corn, some potatoes and a sliced tomato on the side. Yes, I am southern and my mouth is already watering. I hope my friends like their veggies. If not, I will cook them another time and they will be all mine!!!! ( Insert slightly evil laugh here)

P.S. More photos soon. My camera battery died and takes a while to get back up.

I don't think there's anything wrong with hoping they don't like your veggies so that you can have more. But I've had your okra, corn and potatoes before and I'm pretty sure they'll all devour them.
