The Garden

Every year around Mother's Day I wish for railroad ties to be built up around my little garden area. Then we could fill it with dirt and plants that are already growing. I wouldn't have to get down on my knees to pull weeds which is nearly impossible with my back. Every year Steve ignores me about what I want to do with my little space.

Last year my wonderful kids bought plants and seeds that Justin and Josh planted for me. Steve II might have done some of the preliminary work too and my Steve supplied the dirt. When the seeds started growing, I couldn't tell which were flowers and which were weeds. What a bummer :( I wasn't born with a green thumb. With others' advice I ended up pulling some plants and letting weeds grow.

The only obvious plants that started from a seed were the Kohlerobe which is a vegetable that I always plant in the flower garden (yummy!). Overall, flowers did come up and looked pretty good. I know it would cost a lot to make my ideas into reality, but it would look so neat. And if the plants were already grown, I would recognize and pull weeds as they start to grow, not having to worry about if I was pulling a flower!

Speaking of Mother's Day, Father's Day will be here before you know it. With Steve really loving gel pens, I've been tossing around the idea to get him personalized pens. He's always complaining because he cannot find his favorite pens. This way I'd have a whole supply for him and I could put something neat on the pen to let him know I think about him all year!
