Gardening on a Gorgeous Day

I hear a lot of people talk about having their own garden as a way to save money.  I will be the first person to tell you that my garden probably does not save me any money.  Why, you may ask?  Well, we have awful soil.  Here and there we've added bagged soil and compost to it, and even rented a tiller once, but underneath it's just too rocky. 

Now, I told myself that I just wasn't going to mess with it this year because we didnt really have much money to put into it.  I was sad about that choice though because it is such a fun thing to do, and my daughter enjoys it too.  Then, one day I went to look for something in the back shed, and I found some seeds that I thought I had used up last year.  Lot's of them, too.  So I began busting up my little garden plot and getting some weeds out of it.  Today, my daughter and I planted some seeds in one of those seed starter trays.  I know I got a kinda late start, but with this crazy weather and two weeks ago we had 6 inches of snow.  When they sprout my husband is going to get some rows fixed up for us to plant them in.  I'm going to plant some herbs and spinach in a long window planter.  I hope those do well.  It would be so nice to be able to go out and pick a salad. =)  Here is a picture of my little garden helper.
