Green thumb?

More like black hands!

Steve and I spent the morning running to Lowe's and working on our patio garden. It feels so good to have it all planted!

While we were at Lowe's, Steve lifted this giant bag of potting soil and it split open in the cart! Dirt all over the floor. We flagged down a guy and he said, "Oh! Hahaha! No worries! You're not the first ones!" He was really nice about it and got us a new bag and cleaned up our big mess. Thank you, Mr. Lowe's Guy!

Another thing we discovered at Lowe's was VEGGIE TALES seeds!! So awesome!

Once we got home, we dug right into the fresh soil and Miracle-Gro. We have basil, cilantro, romaine lettuce, sweet sugar snap peas, and five varieties of tomatoes, plus wildflowers, chicks and hens, and... yarrow maybe? I can't remember what the big flowers are. They're from Grandma. We started our own Early Girl tomatoes from seed. Steve's grandma gave us four more tomato plants including Beefsteak, Big Yellow (slicing tomato), Roma, and Yellow Pear. We're so excited!

As soon as we had the seedlings outside, the rain came and the wind started whipping about. Hope the Lord takes good care of them! I know Steve will take special care of them while I'm gone. He's such an excellent husband and a great handyman!
