Taters and Onions

Some of our little girls came over to help PopPop plant the potatoes and onions today. The temperature was about 67F so it was a pretty nice day to be doing some gardening.


After the onions were all in the ground, the girls moved over to the turnip patch to pull a bunch up to take to their other granny's house. You can see PopPop still over there in the potato and onion patch in the background. The wind broke the pole on our Martin house so that still needs repairing. The baskets scattered around behind the girls will support the tomatoes after they're planted in a few weeks.


There was a little tree climbing going on after the gardening was done.

"taters and onions" a sure staple around here, but I bet they taste extra delicious with little hands having helped plant them...I can't wait for our frost days to be over so I can dig in the dirt.

Love those tree shots!
