working in the garden

Working in the garden every day now that the weather has turned lovely.
Our vegetable garden has been in now three weeks and already the
green onions are ready to pick.

I put in tomatoes,peas,corn,carrots,swisschard,spinach,leaks,sweet onions,basil,
egg plant,sweet peppers,zuccini,cucunbers,chives, pumpkins and sunflowers.
That should keep us going for awhile.

Today my grandaughter was over and we made a garden man.

While visiting Debbie @ Confessions of a Plate Addict she had a great tutorial ,
on how to make a garden man.

So we gathered my pots, twine, corks,and a long stick and began to make
a garden man.
We added some plants from the garden for his hair.
We think he turned out just great.

We had time to clean out the pond since the birds have been busy
taking baths.

If you look closely you can see the fish.
Have a great week!
until next time, Happy Gardening!

I'm joining in the fun @ DebbieDoo's Copy cat challenge


  1. Oh it is all looking soooooo good. Part of our yard is ok and part is a total disaster. I need DH to give me a hand, so really heavy duty stuff needs to be done. We didn't get a garden planted, hopefully this fall. I really miss the veggies. Hugs, Marty

  2. You're going to have a great garden - we are late this year so will probably be harvesting in December!

  3. I like your garden man, and in fact your whole garden is looking lovely.

  4. Your garden looks fabulous...and so does your flower pot man! Thanks so much for the shout out!...hugs...Debbie

  5. That is just so adorable! I love your Gardens. I am so happy you joined in on the copy cat challenge!

  6. I think we're going to have to have a garden next spring! I love that garden man!

  7. Oh my LORD he is so cute!!! :D I am always envious of gardens since we cannot have one here at our home. Wow, your sitting area out there is so pretty!

  8. Isn't gardening fun! love your little pot man.
