I've always wanted to have a green thumb & grow a garden. I'm no expert & can't say that I'm really any good at it but I try. I've never tried to grow anything that would result in us eating any of the products but this year, I have decided to tackle my dream. Why not?
There seems to be a resurgence of victory gardens & I'm joining the movement. Cheesy, maybe. Worth the trouble, we'll have to see. The fun we had putting the plants in our new garden, worth it again & again & again.
See, I decided to make this a family event. Why? B/c I want my kids to start learning about the world in general, starting in our backyard. Off to Home Depot I went. I bought a few veggies, nothing too crazy, being that it is our 1st garden. Then we go the kids ready for outside. Lots of mosquito repellent now that the heat has arrived.
Meme, Abu, Oma & Katy were over hanging out when we started the project. The kids were so excited!
They each wanted their own tool & loved the wheelbarrow.
Sofi was hard at work, helping me.
The kids really got in to it, crouching down like Mommy & putting plants in the ground.
One of our cherry tomato plants.
Our cucumber plant, 1 of 4.
The finished product!
We will hopefully be growing the following:
1. Tomatoes (regular & cherry)
2. Onions (sweet white & yellow)
4. Bottleneck yellow squash
5. Lettuce (regular & Romaine)
6. Banana peppers
I promise to show the "fruits" of our labor!
