A gardener's dream

The weather here is perfect! It is rare that we gt beautiful weather like this in April, let alone on days the whole family is here to do some planting! We have some big plans for the day, but everyone is well rested and the sun shine is making them happy to go outside.

First Ryan will set the bean poles and get the beans in the ground, this year we are growing both purple and green and I will sow a second set once the first is two feet high. While he works on that, I will fence off the new section, add some soil and get the garlic, onions, carrots and parsnips in the ground. Then we are off to weed the berry patch and the front garden bed, and I need to get a few pots ready for transplanting herbs. Next week we will transplant the tomatoes, cucumbers, squashes and begin the lettuce and spinach. I also need to get the nets for the pear trees, they are lush and green and hopefully will get us a nice little harvest!
