how does your garden grow

i'm daydreaming over my garden today...itching to get my bare hands in the dirt and seeing what pops up!
i've found a sweet kind of therapy in sowing seeds and pulling weeds. this year's garden will be a good soulful place for me to find some peace while we wait for our own little sweet pea sis to pop up come july!
 
we're hoping for lettuce and radish and squash and cucumber this year...and i'm already looking forward to being barefoot and pregnant and filthy.
there's just something about garden soil under the nails that can take a gal to the heavens!

  2. I love flowers and veggies, but it´s so hard to pull it all together so it looks great too! I´m in need of serious practice... I always grow tomatoes, lettuce and radish though - they are in my comfort zone..! :-D

  3. First of all: I love the colour of your dress. So lovely and spring like.

    I am very fond of gardening as well. Nothing makes my mind more at peace than weeding, one inch at a time, until everything looks nice and healthy again. It's like weeding out the sorrows of my mind in a way :)

    Enjoy!

  6. Oh yes, hands full of dirt with your back to the setting sun... that is bliss. This time of year we can have snow, this year everything is growing... I already transplanted a bush. It was amazing to put the shovel in the ground and breathe. Looking forward to seeing your little sweet pea and your garden come to fruition. Be well mama.

  7. Pregnant and barefoot in the dirt sounds like the picture of happiness! I've just taken on a long-neglected allotment so will be doing plenty of digging in the dirt this spring. Broad beans and carrots are on my wishlist.

  8. Lovely lady! I wish I knew the first thing about gardening; there's nothing that tastes quite as good as what's grown in your own backyard. Your dress is beautiful, by the way! I must stock up on pretty things like this before our next baby! ;) x

  11. I've been seeing lots of garden posts lately... I'm guessing you're in America and the weather is turning to Spring. I'm in Australia and we're just starting to embrace Autumn at the moment so I'm looking forward to all the cosy warm things to do indoors :)

  18. I wish I were more like that! Do you believe there is a gardening gene? If so, I just didn't get it. But could spend hours reading about and looking at pictures of other folk's gardens!! So share away!!! <3

  20. There is nothing better then digging in the earth & being able to eat something that you grew!
    We're in the process of planning out our garden over here as well!
