It's planted!

After so long of the garden being too wet to get the tractor in and work it up for our garden we finally have it planted! We should have had it in a month ago but haven't had 2 days in a row without rain so it had to wait. We planted corn, green beans, purple hull peas, beets, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, squash, zucchini (only 6 hills) and we transplanted about 8 tomato plants that our daughter and grandson had started before they moved here from Memphis. It got too hot before we did the cantalope and watermelon so we will do that in the morning if it isn't too wet. Yes, we got rain for our garden today. I didn't want to take a bucket of water out there, it would take a long time to water each seed and the hose won't reach. The top picture shows two of my grandchildren playing in the garden the day before we planted it.

Easton is helping plow the garden and Malia is doing what 17 month old babies do, tasting the dirt!

Yeah, I noticed you 'ganked' (as Mike and Easton would say) some of the pics.
Sorry I missed all the fun (sarcasm!).
