Quite well, actually. Thanks for asking!
As you know, Husband built these lovely and large raised garden boxes so we could plant and grow fresh vegetables above the sandy soil of Florida.
Here’s Lallie helping to plant some strawberries a few weeks ago.
And here we are planting the seeds for lettuce, cucumbers, peas, beans, zucchini, onions, radishes and green peppers and plants for more tomatoes and jalapenos.
Here our our beautiful vegetables so far, about 3 or 4 weeks after planting (please excuse our ficus hedge, it did not fair well in the winter freeze of 2010.
Strawberries are in the pots.
OH how I cannot WAIT to pluck these off the vine!!! Tomatoes at the grocers here leave much to be desired. But these tomatoes are tasty, tasty, tasty and we can hardly STAND leaving them there to finish ripening. After all, we’re southern…..we do love a good fried green tomato!
And this is our rabbit, our pet if you will. He’s come back year after year to visit us and we’ve always had fun watching him hop around the yard. Until now. This little fur-ball is nibbling our plants! Ack! Husband wants to give it lead poisoning, which would destroy Lallie’s little heart (of course, not in front of her). I suggest we just put up some wire fencing. We haven’t decided yet.
Oh,how I can’t wait for everything to be ready to eat and fill our tummy’s! Lallie is even excited about eating vegetables. She’ll eat a tomato off the vine, but she won’t eat one from the store! Frankly and based on what I said above, I don’t blame her!
Happy Tuesday Y’all!
