we got us a garden

I grew up with a garden in my backyard and this is my first attempt at it myself. We're hoping for yummy fruits and veggies all summer and herbs to add to our meals. Silas "helped" and was quite natural with his little shovel in the pot...had to tell him "no touch" after the photo op. ;)
Those pots contain: tomatoes, zucchini, red peppers, green peppers, cucumbers, cantaloupe, strawberries, lavender, chives, corriander, oregano, parsley and basil.

Having dirt under my nails was so fun and along with playing in the backyard in our pajamas and going a day without shoes, we find it downright good for the soul.
Adoption 2 Update: We're waiting on our homestudy to be completed. After that we'll take a few things to Raleigh to be certified, wait for a fingerprint appointment from USCIS and then we'll get our I-171H. The compiling of our dossier (the paper baby, all of the paperwork we are required to gather) went super fast, so now we wait for the last couple of things to make it complete and then we wait. Wait, wait, wait. And pray, pray, pray.
In the meantime, this little guy is keeping us plenty busy and I'm loving every minute of it!

Oh and if this garden is plentiful, look for me and this little salesman in our front yard with our own little Adoption fundraiser produce stand. But, I'm not counting my zucchini before they hatch!
