Garden Month: The Weekend Gardener

This weekend we got busy in the garden - finally! We started seeds for planting later this month; we filled big containers with organic potting mix and transplanted the small herb plants we bought from the nursery. It was hard work and incredibly fun.

Here are a few more photos of the work we did this weekend. What did you do in your garden this weekend? Plant? Water? Enjoy?
