Garden pictures from two weeks ago

Just because I've been a bit of a slacker lately, I thought I'd put up some pics of our finally-planted garden :)

First up, our beans and peas:

And, naturally, Fran being cute with scary eyes next to our new fire pit:

And, because blogger is being a big wiener-head with my pics, here is the picture I had posted FIRST, but has decided to jump down to the bottom, and I cannot for-the-life-of-me manage to get it back up top.  Our potatoes, beets and carrots:

And my sweet little daffodils that I thought were crocuses when I planted them:

I forgot to take the pictures of the little mini-greenhouse that contains our spinach, swiss chard and kale, and I ain't gonna try after this hulla-balloo.  I have no idea why this post was so hard to do.  Blogger, why do you hate me so??? 

On another note, the gardening that I did do, which admittedly is a lot less than the work that Dom did, made me sore for a good week.  Not joint sore, but leg muscle sore.  I have this habit, as my knees don't like to squat for any length of time, of bending straight over at the waist when I garden.  So, basically I was stretching on and off for a couple of hours.  Stretching is great.  Extensive stretching when your are not particularly stretchy is not so great.  I think I need to invest in a little stool if I want to spend any time in our garden this summer.

  1. Aw good effort, it will look so nice when it's done. I'm sitting in my back garden just now (I live in a block of flats, we have a shared garden) and just discovered my wireless connection from the house reaches here. Amazing!! I hope your plants grow quickly :)
