Last spring, we had our Linden tree cut down in the front yard. It had been damaged very badly by snow when it was leafed out. So since then, we have had this stump in the yard. We have talked about making a flower bed that included the stump and decided this was the spring to do it. Rowen started by installing this cool edging, then digging out the sod.
Someday, hopefully the whole bed will be as beautiful as this lily already is!
The same evening, we planted our garden. These are rows of green beans and beyond them, the zucchini.
Cucumbers will have the fencing to climb on.

Our milk jugs, or tomatoes--we are doing an experiment this year with small plants, in the jugs, and larger ones (Bonnie brand) to see what grows the best. On the south side is radishes and on the west is lettuce. They are already coming up, and we've seen one bean plant, so far...
Emily helped plant also, but she is our main photographer, so she doesn't get in many pictures herself!
