I put Jackson in his tractor tee that says "Ricks" on it so he could feel like he was contributing. Mostly though he just spent his time sleeping and chillin' in the sunshine (don't worry I put SPF 50 on him-- if he has my skin I will feel really sorry for the kid!)

Our first attempt at a garden
The weather has finally taken a turn for the better! Our neighborhood offers garden plots in the community and since we are going to actually be around this summer we are taking the plunge and trying our hand at gardening! I am SO EXCITED. I have seriously wanted to do this every summer but haven't been able to. Our plot is pretty decent size-- 8x15 or so I think. Mostly I am dying for tomatoes, but we are going to try out a whole bunch of things: beans, peppers, jalepeno peppers, carrots, squash, etc. So far all we've done is worked in a few bags of compost, but this week we are going to mix in fertilizer (thank you Jessica!), make rows and plant our carrots. Wanna know what the best part is? It's hooked up to an automatic watering drip system! Booyah!
