Spring Outside Work

I have been so busy this spring working on getting our property ready for summer.  The garden is coming up with lettuce, peas, carrots, beets, spinach, chard and strawberries.  I only have the first four boxes planted or partially planted.

This box has peas and onions,
This is the lettuce, spinach, and peas box.  Oh yeah, that plant in the upper left hand corner is a voluntary potato that came up this year.

And this box has the carrots and more peas.  I planted several different colors of carrots this year, yellow, red, purple, and of course orange.

Here are my pallet planters that hubby made for my strawberries.  They already have flowers which will produce a strawberry later, and has a total of 50 plants in two of these planters.

Look at how my greenhouse plants are doing.  I have hundreds of seedlings that have turned into real live big plants!  I am so happy that it is such a success for my first year at trying this greenhouse work.

Flowers are blooming in my porch planters,

My son spread three yards of 3/4" gravel in our big driveway.  

My hubby was so nice, and bought me a new work toy to help me with all my work outside and around our house.  WhooHoo!!!
