Summer Time! Finally!!

Summertime is finally here for us in Minnesota. 

So we better get busy!  Tilling, Planting, finding all our garden tools from last year and making a plan for this year.  

I love my garden.  But, I was not very kind to it last year and it repaid the favor, by not providing us the bounty we hoped for.  This time around, I vow to do better.  Haha, I always do!  

But we are off to a good start. 

It was a hot Saturday.  Even our pups were looking for ways to cool down.  

We decided to plant mostly vegetables that we got from the farmers market and the little Amish farm up the road.  That place is my favorite!  It’s so rustic and organic.  Every time I visit, I think I could live this simple life too.  Then I come home to my cell phone and laptop and color pencils and stencils and am perfectly happy to sit and journal about the farmers we talked to that day.  What we learned from everyone and all the great vegetables that were planted.  It’s a pretty sweet life we live too.  We are thankful. 

I’m sharing with you a page I created that shows my garden plans and notes.  I used Faber Castell Polychromos Color Pencils and a Micron Pigma pen, size .005 and .01
