Meet-and-Greet Monday: Gardening

Last Monday was labor day. So, we decided to do some gardening. This mostly meant clearing up areas, digging up weeds, etc. We also put in a few flowers. We still have a long ways to go, but it's a good start!
Jeremiah wanted to help out:

Chiste decided he liked the newly tilled garden spot

Jeremiah played in the pool while our friend Christy helped till and pull weeds

Proof I helped:

Here are the newly tilled/weeded areas:
In the above picture I planted 3 impatiens plants and lots of impatiens cuttings (you can't see them very well in the picture). One of the things I love about gardening here is that you can take so many different cuttings and just plant them in the ground! They are already starting to bud and bloom, but this pic was from last week.

Again, I planted some cuttings. There are also some rose vines in the middle of the area.

Our next gardening adventure: growing lechosa (papaya) trees from seed and planting ground cover. Eventually I'd like to plant beans too.
