Gardening and the Beginning of Lent

(NOTE: I tried to post this yesterday but was unable to post pictures for some odd reason)

Today is the first day of Lent. I hope that everyone has a very blessed Lent!

Here are some pictures of our garden.
-bulbs returning and new bulbs (as in planted this last fall) coming up
-our raised bed converted to a square foot garden (lettuce starts are planted)... Can you see the squares?
-Big P planted seeds in an egg carton. Hopefully, these will come up and become starts in the garden. We have more to do (probably tomorrow after he comes home from school).
-DH decided to plant peas outside of the raised bed, in a circle.

Goals for the garden area:
-To build another raised bed (maybe 4 x 4 rather than 8 x 4) for tomatoes, peppers, and maybe onions.
-build a compost bin from pallets (read about it in square foot gardening).

How's your garden growing?

Forgive me, my sister.

Look at how gorgeous the garden is! You should come tell me how to make my garden grow.
