Garden, oh how I love and hate thee...

William was given a cabbage plant at school with the challenge to plant it and take care of it and see how big it can get and if we track it and it is the biggest one, he could win a $1000 scholarship for college.  My garden got weeded, tilled and all prepared for plants last summer, but alas we never got to it.... So I just weeded an area and we planted it today... It doesn't look to hot, but I hope it does okay, he really wants to win.  We'll see.  I hope to be able to plant cucumbers, lettuce, watermelon, and I can't think of anything else at the moment.  Maybe cherry tomatoes.

While we were outside I looked around and wanted to cry, I really dislike my yard and wish I could just start all over, but we can't do that and I know I just need to be happy, and I can always pull weeds and make things look prettier. I also know I have to be happy that I have somewhere to plant a garden and knowledge of how to do so.  Thank-you papa!

I'm looking forward to eating fresh fruits and vegetables straight from the garden, there is nothing better!

I understand the frustrations with your yard. We just mowed today and I see SO much work that needs to be done but yet we are so lacking in the time, money and enthusiasm department.

I hope the cabbage grows HUGE! ( :
