We decided to plant a garden. We may regret it. OR We may end up basking in the goodness of our harvest come September. Either way we are going to try.
I've decided to document our progress on my blog (because isn't that what blogs are for--places to put random thoughts and information that no one really cares about? I figure by putting it on my blog, it'll help me do my best to care for our garden and not forget to water it . . . besides all you pro gardeners out there can give me your best tips and advice.
So here goes nothin' . . .
Our plot of dirt. We are renting our home right now. Luckily, the owners of the house already had this great garden area. This is the biggest garden we've ever done. We've only done small garden boxes before. They already have raspberries and rhubarb back there!
We bought our seeds . . . the kidlets love the idea of the pumpkins, but not the onions.
I even saved a few squash and cantaloupe seeds from ones we had eaten this past year.
I bought tomato and pepper plants (green, red, and jalepeno)
And I got some flowers. I LOVE LOVE LOVE flowers.
I saw this idea on Pinterest (wish I could credit someone, but I don't know where it came from). So I decided that would be a fun way to get the kidlets into the gardening fun.
The kidlets painted all the rocks. They did a great job.
They loved choosing the colors.
Then we added names so we can remember where all our seeds are planted . . . now we just need to plant the actual seeds.
