Gardening time

FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS my boss, Sam, has been telling me that I need a garden.When I protest that I don't have a place to put a garden as I've lived in apartments and now a townhouse, Sam always reminds me that there is a yard at the office. I've always had a reason not to put in a garden. My main reason was that I had nobody to help me tend it. Well, this year I can't use that as an excuse. My wonderful husband has "volunteered" to spend his days off weeding and watering and making sure our garden grows big. So I told Sam that this year we would have a garden at the office.

On Saturday, my Father-in-Law cut a garden for James and I. I'm so glad that he was willing to haul his rototiller over and spend two hours of his Saturday working so we can plant a garden.

I'm so excited to be able to plant the garden in the next few weeks and I'm even more excited to be able to harvest and eat the yummy tomatoes, squash, green beans, Swiss chard, peppers, and onions that we'll cultivate.

I love gardens! I can't wait to plant my own someday. This is a perfect idea when you don't have a yard at home. You must have an awesome boss!
