10 on 10… Take 4

So, what is 10 on 10 you may ask?

10 on 10 is 10 photographers, posting 10 images on the 10th of each month. This is a personal project that I’m starting with a group of 10 other photographers. We are all members of 4 the Love Focus, an on-line forum for professional women photographers. After you’re done here you can click the link below to go visit the next photographer in our little group-

Sadly for a lot of professional photographers, myself very much included, our own family photographers of the daily happenings in our lives are left not documented. For myself I found that the more I learned about my camera the less I’ve used it for images of everyday life. I’m constantly thinking about ISO, shutter speeds, light…. and not about capturing these precious moments in my children’s lives. That is why I’ve joined this 10 on 10 group. These images while not technically perfect are capturing my children and our lives.

This month’s images are all about one of our favorite spring time activities… planting our garden. My family never had a garden growing up, but Steve’s grandpa had 3 huge gardens. In fact one garden sat where our house now sits, and was bigger than the area of our house. He grew just about everything you could grown in the Inland Northwest. So, by comparison our seems pretty small to my husband, but to most would seem huge. This is our 3rd year growing it and each year it gets a little bigger and we try something new. This year we’re planting 2 kinds of lettuce (and another a little later), 2 kinds of carrots, peas, green beans, yellow beans, 3 kinds of tomatoes, onions, corn, zucchini, yellow squash, acorn squash, and cucumbers. This year we also planted several fruit trees- apples and peaches. Hopefully in a couple years we’ll add some fruit into our veggies and produce from the grocery store will be a thing of the past, at least for the bulk of the year!

Every good garden starts with a good dose of manure and then rotatilling it all in. Thank goodness for Grandpa’s rotatiller!

Now it is time to plant. First making the rows. Riley is helping with some more rotatilling with his truck. 😉 Not everything is planted yet… gotta wait for it to stop freezing overnight, but it is a good start!
