Spring Work – Part II

We finished planting our garden on Wednesday. Here are some pictures.

Planting potatoes

We raced to see who could get the most rows of potatoes planted!


Transplanted tomatoes

Micah with the seeder

Micah with the Earthway seeder, a handy gadget which digs your row to the depth you set it, plants the seed, covers it and marks the specified distance to your next row! The only down side is that you can’t soak your seeds or water your rows before you plant so hopefully the seeds do well as we have not had much rain yet!



This year the older boys rented 2 acres of land from a nearby farmer because they wanted to plant some of their carrot crop in sandy soil. They also set things up so they can have three sprinklers going at once using water from the nearby slough. If you enlarge this picture, you can see 2 of the sprinklers running.


The pump

Genesis 2:15 – And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
