Finally got our garden planted today ...



We have been talking about it for weeks and finally got to Kmart (of all places) to get our tomato plants, squash and cucumbers. We had checked Lowes and Home Depot and theirs were pretty much picked over. Kmart had the best selection of all! And no one was there. Why is it that Kmart is like a ghost town and Walmart is a mob scene? ha ha

I still would like to get zucchini and Charlie would like to grow a watermelon or cantelope but we can't find any so we're going to keep looking till we find them.

Today is our 16th anniversary. We were in St. Thomas 16 years ago today getting married on Magen's Bay. I wish we were there right now!!

I added 2 photos. We are using a type of ground cover to keep the weeds under control. We'll see if this helps. Of course, any wind storm we have, it looked like the cover would blow it right off so we put some dirt on it to try and keep it down on the ground. In photo #2 you can see where the barn is in regards to my little garden. That is where the rooster and chickens are. Mr. Rooster isn't being the friendliest rooster lately. He keeps looking like he is going to attack me when I take the eggs and I am not liking that one bit. I won't turn my head for a second!! So that is that ...

Great pictures Sherri. I'm so glad you have your garden planted. It will be a couple of weeks before gardens in our area are tilled and planted.
