So where the heck have you been Mrs. Maven?? Yea I hear ya... well first is the ISR swim lessons as you saw below. Next has been gardening away! Mr. Maven decided to have a "hoe" down in the garden, literally, the poor man hoe'd his little butt off for 2 days to clear the weeds from the garden so that I could plant my bounty. (love that man!) And now we have things in the ground FINALLY. It is a little barren at the moment since I just got everything in the ground but it will be overgrown before you know it.
See the problem with gardening in Colorado is that our growing season, well, pretty much sucks! You can't put anything in the ground until after May 15 because it still snows here periodically... joy... as it did this year...
Dear poor Topsy Turvy tomato plant,
I apologize for getting too excited and planting
you on Mother's Day only to have you die a
frozen death a week later in a random annoying
~Green Thumb Maven
Oh yea and what am I growing... here's the list
Scallions & Red scallions
3 varieties of squash
4 varieties of Peppers
Dozens (literally) of tomatoes
A variety of herbs
... and I'm sure a couple other's I've forgotten at this point ;)
So keep your fingers crossed for the garden this year!!
