I also LOVE how it makes me feel close to my Mom. She was an avid gardener! Growing up, she had a huge vegetable garden which my brother and I would help to keep free of weeds. (not our favorite job in the world back then!)
My Dad gave me my Mom's gardening gloves, and so as I worked in the garden yesterday, planting, and weeding our strawberry bed, I wore my Mom's gloves! Such a blessing to me!
So...yesterday while the boys were on a roof job with Glenn, we started planting! Nicole had many jobs yesterday. She did some watering and then she was my sawdust hauler! Glenn got a trailer load of sawdust from his Uncle to put as a weed barrier in between our rows. She must have hauled over 20 or more buckets for me yesterday!

|Elisha was in charge of planting: radishes, 2 kinds of lettuce, kale, spinach, some peas, and 2 kinds of swiss chard. Thank you cutie pie Elisha!|
|Many hands truly do make light work! When Glenn got home from work he couldn't believe how much we had gotten done!|
|Nicole...my one-gal bucket brigade! She did a great job!|
|This is one of the crowns of asparagus. We planted 50!|
