We're getting ready for planting!

It's that time of year again--planting season! Perhaps some of you have just started your gardening, too. I'll be planting seeds indoors in the next week or so, but in the meantime, this is what Q has been up to....

He has spent several hours already plotting out and digging our new garden area. You may remember that last year we shared a garden with an older couple from church. It was a fun learning experience and now we get to use what we know and do it by ourselves.

This is the what the plot looked like a few days ago. Q got a bit further on it yesterday. We're hoping to get some manure in and then test the soil. Once he's done, I'll measure it and let you know how big our garden's going to be. We have ideas on what we'd like to plant, including roma tomatoes again. We have plans for canning this year, so we have a big job ahead of us. It's exciting, isn't it? It's fun to watch things grow, save money and eat the fruit of your labors.:)

What are you planting this year? Do you have any tips for us as we start this endeavor? We would love to hear your ideas! Happy planting.;)
