They that sow in tears shall reap joy. ~Psalms 126:5

That quote has new meaning for me today!
Yesterday we did quite a bit out in the yard and today my back and shoulders are paying for it!

Doug got the tiller out one more time and tilled a bed for me that will be our new Mary garden. It is located between the house and the garage and I can look out on it from my kitchen window. It doesn't look like much now, but I did plant four roots of pink and white 'Bleeding hearts' and two roots of Nikko Blue hydrangea.

I also got my vegetable garden hoed and covered in black plastic. The plastic (hopefully) will keep me from having to weed and water so much this summer! I put down boards between my rows so we could walk and not tear the plastic. If you're thinking this garden is big....yup, it is! It measured 12X20!!! I know that is HUGE for a first time garden...but I've always been an over achiever!

My seedlings have sprouted! I'm so excited!!!
After a few more weeks they'll be ready to put into the garden. I can almost taste that fresh salsa now!

So for our out of town friends and family reading this, plan your visit for mid summer. I'll let you take home whatever you can carry!

Wow I am jealous. My attempts last year flooded. Good luck, and we may have to make a road trip ;-)
