For quite some time I have been wanting to plant our garden. Steven planted the tomatoes a while ago and they have little green tomatoes on them now. This is our garden plot. Nothing huge, but we managed to sew seeds for six different vegetables.

These are peas.

Chop sticks make good garden signs.

If you're wondering about Peter, do not worry. After Steven blocked his hiding place under the porch he helped us out and left on his own accord.

Our orange tree actually has a few oranges on it this year! I am still waiting on the lemons to turn yellow so I can make the famous lemon bars!

Lemon bars sound so good! Gardening can be so relaxing (when I'm not also chasing down my 3 year old)!

Hi Charisa,

Please come by my blog and pick up your award.

And pass it on to 5 blogs of your choice.

It would be good if you would choose some blogs new to you.

Please mention who you got the award from, when you put it on your sidebar add link to blog you received it from.

You can also make a comment about the person who gave the award to you by asking your readers to stop by their blog, pay them a visit, leave a comment, or even 'follow' their blog if they feel led to.

Pass the award on to other blogs and contact these bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Just go to their site and leave a comment to one of their posts telling them you have an award for them and to please come by your blog to get it.

I am not passing this award along as much as I am giving you a list of blogs to check out and hopefully follow.

I know some of those I have selected may prefer not to participate in this little exercise and that is fine, no problem. Please visit these blogs and if you leave a comment maybe say Herrad sent you.



Your veg garden looks great and 1145 commuting miles brilliant!

By the way how do you make lemon bars?
