We have been getting our seeds planted and ready for the garden. The grass is getting so green outside and I will actually have to mow by next week! We are currently under a tornado warning, the only downside to spring.
I am really excited to get my plants in the ground and start seeing some real growth! I have not been able to have a garden the last two years so I have really been missing it. We have so many different plants that I am excited to see what we are successful at and what we fail at.
The kids picked watermelon and cantaloupes which I have never had luck with. Two years ago with my last garden I was able to get them to grow a bit bigger than a softball and the dog gawn coons would bite holes in them and leave them. I mean come on if you are going to ruin it for me you mind as well eat it all. Do not leave behind most of it making me sad!!!
Next favorite thing about spring is summer will be here soon and that means swimming. This is the river just a mile from my house. Little man and I had to go check it out yesterday as it was in the 80's. This is the White River in Arkansas and is notorious for its cold water. Cold water means fresh water though and it is very clear!
