The days are getting longer and warmer and we are spending more time outside planting and watering. Max loves gardening and heads straight for the raised beds as soon as we get outside. He thinks he's pulling the weeds and helping me out by covering the plants in dirt. It's pretty nice having such a great helper! Seriously, sometimes I can't believe I get to be his Mommy.
We've planted watermelon, cantaloupe, lots of tomatoes, kale, lettuce, green and yellow squash, bell peppers, red peppers and strawberries. I can't wait for this seasons harvest. I'm already collecting recipes on Pinterest.
I collected these branches from my Mom at Sweet Life Garden. They are from her peach trees and will support the tomato plants and sunflowers that we started from seed.
This is my herb box. It's full or parsley, rosemary, mint and dill.
The Florida Prince peach tree has a ton of these beautiful little fruits. I am counting the days until I can make cobblers and some peach ice cream.
