Company Girl Friday

I haven't participated in Company Girl Friday, mainly because I've really been neglecting my blog in favor of Facebook....I miss blogging, so I'm back.

We've had such a busy week--celebrating my birthday on Wednesday and trying to get numerous projects done around the house (in between much complaining over the large amounts of rain--apparently we (in general) can never be satisfied with the weather.)
We've finally managed to plant all of our vegetables and flowers. They've already started popping up and I can't wait to taste the first produce from our garden. Better yet, I can't wait until we purchase our dream home and plant apple trees and blackberry bushes too!

This year we planted zucchini, sugar pumpkins, cucumbers, spaghetti squash, peas, green beans, lettuce, bell peppers, scallions and tomatoes. For flowers we planted a cutting garden mix of zinnias, cosmos, sunflowers and Ireland bells--such pretty little green flowers!

All in all, we've enjoyed a great week with lots of hard work thrown in, but that's part of what made it such a great week. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

And, I'll leave you with this picture:


  1. I hope your garden produces well for you - it sounds like you are off to a good start! We have had a ton of rain in our area, so our garden is growing like crazy, but we need some sunshine! Something have just rotted in the ground!

  2. it's going to be amazing when all of that pops up and you get to cook with food from your OWN garden. Very cool.

  3. Your garden sounds wonderful! I know you will enjoy your hard work.
    Sweet picture! That is one tuckered chick-let!
    Have a great weekend! G;ad you're back to blogging!

  4. Happy belated birthday!

    We're hoping to learn to grow more veggies...only tomatoes for the past 2 years. So we're sticking with what we know works. =p We tried zucchini and chayote squash, but have only gotten a handful. Any tips?
