Act 3; Scene 48: Another Glimpse at Another Saturday

We had a very busy day yesterday.

We planted the rest of our garden!

awesome net protection from birds and critters. hope it works!

please grow, tomatoes!

peppers, squash, zucchini, and green beans
And I picked our second harvest of spinach and lettuce!

We mulched our flower bed, and added a baby lavender plant

don't mind the fading tulips and potted bush...

We played in the grass

And we played on the slide

And...drum roll... the sprinklers are fixed! We can't wait to show off a picture of some green grass in a week or two.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend, and a magical Mother's Day.

Act 3; Scene 47: A Tiny Glimpse at our Saturday

Last Saturday was officially dubbed a "yard work day."

Here are two pics I caught of Robert readying the garden for next Saturday's "planting day."

We borrowed our neighbor's tiller so what would have taken all day with a shovel took Robert 30 minutes.

Do you notice our dry grass, sprinkler problem? Robert spent the majority of the day (including some time last Saturday and this past Friday) trying to figure out our wacky sprinkler system. In the meantime, we've been watering it by hand with the hose...obviously not very effective. Tonight, however, the "sprinkler genius" in our ward is coming to help, so we hope the problems get solved!

But can you also see our baby lettuce and spinach popping up? So exciting!

I also didn't have a chance to snap pictures of me getting some weeds pulled, making scones for our tiller-lending neighbors, and running a few errands. 

Whew, a busy day. 

Just what a spring Saturday should be.

Happy Planting!

(And I hope your sprinklers are working better than ours!)
