A Morning in the Garden

We started the day with a trip to Lowe's. We needed to buy some dirt, a few more plants and a couple of planters. We ended up buying 4 bags of dirt, eggplant seedlings, a yellow squash and a cucumber plant. We also bought a container for dh's stevia plant and 2 terra cotta pots to make toad abodes.

We had planned on making a new flower bed, but we found some unwanted visitors, fire ants. We are now trying to decide how to get rid of them without harming the future veggie garden. We have decided to make a new bed for flowers. The kids want to grow a sunflower garden and I also have some bulbs that we need to plant. So I guess we will do that once we get that rebate check.

The kids also picked up the yard so that dh could mow the grass. While they were cleaning the yard, they found a friend.
