Sniffin Dirt

That's exactly what's been going on at my house the past two days.
Why, you may ask?
Is it because I've been too swamped with homework to wash any of Matt's stinky man socks?
Is it because I broke the belt on the vacuum and since I haven't replaced it yet, I've neglected vacuuming the place for about 3 weeks?

Nope. It's due to all of these little beauties which have invaded my dining room!

We got our seeds planted. Between yesterday and tonight, we've gotten 127 plants started!

Matt and I always move back home during the summer break from school and last year we had a great garden at his Grandpa's house. This year should be even better though, because Matt's going to help me get my own garden started at my parent's. This Saturday he's going to bring the tiller over and till up the area where we want to plant. So, I'll be frantically following after him trying to throw out as many rocks and big clumps of grass as humanly possible to make the soil ready for planting. I'm sure the whole process will look hilarious.

I'm so excited! Here's the lineup for my garden:
Yukon Gold potatoes, okra, yellow onions, white onions, cucumbers, spinach, cantaloupe, watermelon, strawberries, green beans, corn, tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapenos and cauliflower!

Whew, that's a long list. Remind me of my current excitement when I'm out in the 103 degree Oklahoma sun, up to my knees in dirt, and weeding everything this July.

Also, I think it is awesome that you are growing your own veggies and fruit. My parents had a vegetable garden and those were fond memories back in OK!
