Gardening with Friends ...

One of the many joys of gardening is digging in the dirt with friends.
Today I spent 3-4 hours in the sunshine at our friends house. I helped make soil, build the raised beds and then plant in them. Very fun.

The raised beds are sporting: Bed 1 = Sweet Peppers, Chili Peppers, 2 bush cucumber plants and an Eggplant.
Bed 2 = Bush Green Beans, Watermelon, Tomatoes, Carrots and Basil.

This bed has a row of Corn at the back, 4 blueberries, a zucchini and some sweet yellow onions!

Exhausted and slightly sunburned (when will I learn to put on sunscreen?), I think we did a weekends work in just a few hours. The children all helped plant seeds and plants, mixed up soil and raked and hoed where necessary and they carried all those landscaping stones from the garage to the beds you now see. Everybody pitched in and did great work.
