Garden Part 1

I told y'all that we were going to work on the garden this weekend. 

And I actually didn't lie! I figured I was jinxing us by posting about it, but it was a beautiful sunny day. About 60 degrees. Perfect weather. 

Our friend, Anita, has a truck. And she brought herself and her truck to our apartment so that we could rent the tiller we would need. 

We went to our lovely local hardware store and rented it for two hours, since Anita said it would take 30 minutes to do the piece of "land." It's 20x24 and we needed to do the whole thing.

Anita totally rocked the tiller. I think she's done this before.

The husband and Anita were rocking this tilling project.

I could not control that thing. Though I did make an effort. I'm going to blame my height. Yup.

After we finished we bought tortillas and hamburgers and ate enchiladas. 

Then Anita went home and the husband and I laid out the path. 

Next weekend, join us as we pick out sod and a tree to plant. I'm so freaking excited!

I have perennial goodies to share-- give the climate about 2 weeks and then I can get you the bounty. Anita to the rescue, once again!!!

Our landlord is pretty rockin'. She totally digs the fact that we want to do this and is offering to cover a portion of the expenses. Which is even better.

Thanks Cat! You could always try planting cool stuff in your house? Small pots with herbs?

Yay flowers! We'll have to trade gardening stories, Camie. I'm just kind of going with the flow here. ;)
