You Are What You Eat!

It's garden season!!  YAY YAY YAY!!!  Most of my traits I take from my mom (looks, temper, the occasional blonde moment....)  Seriously, I once had a man stop me in a gas station and call me by my mom's name.  Then he stopped and said, "Wait, there's no way Diana would still be that young!"  Turns out she had gone to high school with him and apparently I look like she did in high school.



But one thing that I definitely got from my daddy is the love of a garden. 



To me, my garden is one of the most peaceful things.   I love going out there and seeing how much things have grown while I was at work.  This time of year, it seems like it changes everyday.  I always wanted a big garden, but never had the area to do it.  Last year we could have planted here, but with all of the construction and yard work, we didn't have time.  So this year is my first year having my very own garden. 
When Spring rolled around, Daddy brought his tiller to my house and Chris and I plotted out where we wanted the garden.  We planted tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, peppers, yellow squash, cabbage and lettuce.  The rabbits ate my lettuce :(  The rest of the garden is doing great.  I thought I would share some pictures of it!
















So far we've picked some cucumbers and yellow squash.  I can't wait to taste all of the veggies we get!  One more thing...

Don't forget!  It's berry season too!  I'll be making jam in a few days :)
