Spring !!!!!!!!

Spring has really arrived in South Carolina. This is absolutely beautiful weather. I do so love where I live.

The garden has been planted. This is the first time we have tried an actual garden. I have grown stuff in pots and water troughs, but we have never actually set up a vegetable garden. Well, now we have. Mr. LT has planted beans, peas, tomatoes, peppers, onions, eggplant, cukes, lettuce, various herbs, corn, watermelon, cantalope, and garlic (as soon as it arrives).

As you know I have DOGS. One DOG especially loves tomatoes. He doesn't waste them he actually eats them. Guess who that might be?

That would be the innocent looking one on the right in this picture. Actually, this is from last spring. He is now 100 lbs and not so innocent. It must have been all of the tomatoes he ate last year.

Since Rocky and Jake have the run of the yard, we decided that we would use the old dog pen for the garden. It has been at least 10 years since the last dog lived in there, so Mr. LT and the children (grown ups) tilled and cleaned it out and it has now been planted. If you look closely through the screen in this picture, you can see where I am talking about in the back corner of the yard. We have had loads of fun getting all of this prepared and planted. Now to water, weed, and watch it grow. I'll post some pictures later.

Have a great week,

And we only have to worry about the deer getting the tomatoes and peppers! Glad when we put up the new dog pen we left the garden on the outside of it.

It sure is fine to be in Caroline........!
