Before and After ... Plant a garden!


Summertime is the bomb! We eat so much salad in August, I almost get tired of it. Almost. Yesterday I picked about 10 pounds of green beans. and the red lettuce is taking over.

Because of the weather in Colorado, we can’t plant until after the last weekend in May, so our season is short. That doesn’t really seem to matter. Checkout the first photo, taken before planting on June 1, and the second photo is of the garden today.

Everybody who can stand to save a buck on food, and has room for a few planters around the yard, could benefit from planting vegetables. This year I shopped worn out book shelves at garage sales and turned them all into planter boxes. I LOVE the summertime!
