Plowing the field

Farmer Ken went out to plow the fields. It's already April and normally everything would be planted by now, but we are having the weirdest weather (snow showers!!!) and it's making it very risky to plant anything for fear of freezing!
A few doors down from us is a sweet family and a couple of their kids came by looking for odd jobs to earn money. So for the last year the little girl weeds each week. After Mr Ken got the "field" plowed she and I went out to pluck the last of the weeds. UGH-with all the rain it is a goopy mess! This may sound strange...but after everything is all weeded and plowed, it is the prettiest dirt ever!So now our fingers are crossed for the sun to stick around for a little while, or at least that the snow has stopped passing through, because we hope to have some of our garden planted this weekend.
Tomatoes, jalepenos, potatoes, onion, squash, lettuce, sugar peas, carrots, zucchini, pumpkins, garlic....I love fresh produce!!!!
This year I am going to try a little canning! It would be nice to have our own vegetables year round!!!!

The year I learned to can my own salsa, I was the happiest girl ever! You can definitely do it!!

Jealous that you can get something planted soon. Here in MN I'm still hesitant for a week or two to put anything in. But then the carrots and onions are going in.
