Vegetable Garden In!

We spent a gorgeous Saturday morning getting our vegetable garden started. My brother-in-law Mike generously offered his green thumb. That's him pretending to have muscles. He is seriously going to embarrass his kids when they're teenagers. It's going to be awesome.
Eric loved digging up the grass.

Evidence that I actually worked and didn't just sit around taking pictures and sipping lemonade.
We planted tomatoes, radishes (four kinds!), carrots, soy beans, green beans, sugar snap peas, some kind of melon, and patty pan squash. The radishes have awesome names like German Giant and White Icicle. One of them had these supernatural shiny green seeds:

I hope they become glow in the dark radishes. I feel like Jack of Jack and the Beanstalk waiting to see what happens to the seeds that I foolishly traded for a cow. Only I never had a cow.

Also, the lilacs are starting to bloom in our backyard.

I love those little seeds. They look like beads. Seed beads. :)
