Transplanting Rocks

It seems that this is the year we finally start the garden we've always talked about. Teagan borrowed the tractor from Dad and set to work. He took out the rocks & weeds that were around the front of the house and transplanted them to a sunny part of the yard. The front of the house looks nicer already!

Then, he used them to make a new garden. He had to hunt around for a few more rocks, but that job is much easier with the tractor. Just scoop 'em and go!
Here is the finished poduct. He even made a stone path so that the gardening would be easier.
I'm planning to put vegetables here. It's the only spot on the property with full sun. I'm going to put in a tomato, some peppers, eggplant, beans, kale, basil, and broccoli. It sounds like a lot, but I only want a couple of each plant. In my new flat spot by the house I'm going to plant some lettuce or spinach. I can't wait to eat fresh veggies from my own garden!

We just finally started the veggie garden this year too! I'll have to blog some photos. I am looking forward to homegrown, FREE veggies this summer as well! What could be better?
