Looks good. I planted a veggie garden a few years and loved it. Just don't have the time now. Are ya'll doing the fence yourself? We have been wanting to do one.

How have you been able to work in the cold?
I must see pictures when everything is green and blooming.
What Bev calls the "bones" look good.

I keep thinking if it really isn't going to snow here for the whole winter I might as well go clean flower beds. Thanks for the nice gardening photos.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment for me on my Blog.

We do not have the place for a garden where we are at now - but at one house we were in, we had the best garden. It was wonderful - the kids would pick the tomatoes off the vine and eat them fresh.

Wow I'm jealous. I'd love to see some planting going on around here!

You are so talented! Once I master whole wheat recipes gallore (and other food storage stuff) I may just venture into gardening so I can use and bottle my own fresh stuff. How great would THAT be?

At least I know who to ask about stuff like mulch and planting season. ha ha

Wow! You've been busy. Wish I could work in the beds... but that is going to have to wait.

Wow! I really want to re-vamp our front flowerbeds this year, but don't think it's going to happen. I'm glad I planted a bunch of bulbs in the fall, at least!

You've been so busy! It must be nice to be able to work outside! It's just too darn cold right now (it was 10 this a.m). But soon, we should only and another month of cold weather and then spring will be here.

Isn't it thrilling to see little nubs poking up, soon to be your old faithful plants back in full force!
