Jackson loves to help me in the garden.  Help as in chewing the asparagus and rolling around in the dirt!

Look at those sad sweet onions, this was after I weeded them.  There are three rows, too close together for the hoe, so I had to remove all the grass that had grown there by hand.  It was solid grass, the width of my yoga mat.  It actually looked pretty cool, but it had to go!

Whenever I dig in the garden, I run across a lot of glass.  Mostly clear and brown.  I save all the pieces that are cloudy, a pretty color or the pieces that are earthenware.  I’ve uncovered some really unique pieces of old stoneware, mostly green in color.  Some have really funky textures.  Did people used to dump trash and bury it in our yard?  Who knows.

Nice looking broccoli and basil.  I harvested the cilantro and arugula before I shot the photo.  They were both up above my waist.  There was so much, I had to give some away.

Blue lake green beans, yum yum!  The thing about working in the garden, is you snack as you go.  I ate all the strawberries out of the box before I took this.

A reminder that my cup really is half full.  If I still had the business on this coffee cup, I wouldn’t have this garden, or two solid days to play in the dirt!  Check out that sweet potato plant.

Weed free for a day!  Sending a garden wave your way.

  1. Every time I dig around here, I find shards of glass. What’s up with that?

  2. I don’t know what’s up with the glass. I found one spot, way down back where the glass just grows. I’ve found huge chunks of those old, brown glass clorox bottles. I dug for over an hour and kept finding cool stuff, then I realized there was no end so I quit!
