A Day with Snails

Okay, maybe snails, pill bugs, worms, and lots and lots of dirt. 
 
We spent the afternoon in our backyard Saturday, enjoying the warm weather and each other’s company. After some family work, tidying up the yard and cutting grass, the kids had a blast exploring under rocks and collecting their favorite pill bugs.

While the kids enjoyed the bugs and the sunshine, I put in some much needed time in the garden. I didn’t use my garden boxes last year on account of my pregnancy, and honestly hadn’treally considered doing one this year since we will be moving once the house sells. But we ultimately decided it was worth the effort to have some some garden produce while we were still here.

So I mixed compost into two of my raised beds, and planted lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and peppers. I will need to cover the beds if we have any really cold nights, but it felt great getting things planted. I’m looking forward to many wonderful salads soon!
