Invasion of the helicopters!

It seems I have been slacking on my gardening these days. We have been quite busy for a few days in a row, so that's my excuse!

We have big maple trees in my front and back yard. Our neighbors do as well. That means we get a nice layer of helicopters or whirley birds covering our lawns in the spring. I went to bed one night and there was no evidence of the helicopters, but when I woke up in the morning it seemed it had rained helicopters all night. The lawns were completely covered, so was the driveway and our car. And so was the garden! It looked horrible!! I have spent 2 days in there trying to get those darn things out among the plants and weeds. I am happy to say that it is all cleared out for now. I know it will most likely get covered again, but the clean up should go faster I hope.

Today I planted 8 watermelon seeds and 9 green bean seeds. All I have left to plant is the summer squash and the flowers if I have not waited too long. I can't believe I did not plant any type of tomato! I have all the ingredients for salsa ( one of my fave foods), but not the main one! Duh.

The onions are looking good ( I think). They are getting very tall. I am not sure where to go from here yet. I need to get on the Internet to see what my next step is.

Amara was helping me until her friend came over to play. I see where her priorities are! Right where they should be.
