Groundwork for the future

We got the ground ready for our expanded garden the other day and anticipate transporting our little seedlings outside in the next week or so. 

It was a little bittersweet digging up a patch of grass in the yard considering how hard we worked to get grass there in the first place.  For those of you who don't know, it's a long story.  Let's just say the person who lived in our house before us didn't like grass.  Digging up part of the yard did have an unexpected benefit, though.

We were able to transport the grass we removed to the spot where we had our tomatoes last year.  It looks really nice, and so far, it is holding up really well.  Oh, joyous me!


  1. Hear Hear to a flawless sod transplant! Our tomatoes are going to need to be planted very soon, too. p.s. did you plant honeydews?

  2. I am quite proud of the sod transplant. It looks like it is going to work. No, we didn't plant honeydews, but we did plant cantaloupe. Honeydew just rhymes better. :)
