The Garden has been planted

These past few days we've been really busy getting the garden all prepped for planting. Finally had the rows plowed so we planted our seeds and small plants. We planted corn, squash, lettuce, bush beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers and 200, yes you heard right, 200 onion bulbs. I think my husband plans on feeding our town again. Of course, in the process of cleaning around the garden we discovered that we have a new neighbor on our premises, we did not invite him, he just showed up and who knows maybe his family as well. Mr. Peter Cottontail has a home somewhere in our yard. We tried to shoo him out of our yard but the sneaky Mr. Cottontail or should I say smart Mr. Cottontail has eluded us. My son got the bright idea, lets have Tipper and Wolfie sniff him out. So, he let them loose. Of course, Tipper was happy to run around and just roll around in the grass and Wolfie has been in love with the poodle three houses down the street that he most likely said to himself now is my chance to go and visit that he just took off. I called to him, no I yelled at him "Wolfie come back", he just turned his head and looked back at me as to say "Adios, I'm outta here". Well, I was not going to go chase him down, that's my son's job. I've done this too many times before, no more. I continued to water the garden as we still have had no rain. Wolfie was finally apprehended. I guess we will have to keep an eye out for Mr. Cottontail to make sure he knows this is not an open buffet for him or his family.

Cute post today! I can't wait to get our garden started, it's a little to early here, we can still get a frost up until May. Spring flowers are starting to bud out, hopefully no more frost here!

We've got a long way to go till garden season around here, but I bought some pansies to plant already. Doesn't it feel good to get something in the ground?

Oh no!! Hope your veggies don't disappear!! I need to start my veggie garden! My husband and father have been putting up a new fence in our back yard, so I've been putting off, so they don't get trampled.

Good luck with your garden. We have had snow for 2 days now! I was hoping for an early spring but the joke was one me!
Hugs,

Lol! Our dog would do the same if we let her loose. I'm not sure she would come back. She would put her nose to the ground and go...tracking every scent she could find. :)

We have seen signs of a rabbit in our backyard (near the garden spot), just hope we planted enough for us and him. :)
