Sarah helped Daddy mix up all the dirt.
Sarah thought planting the seeds was intriguing. Her job was planting the popsicle stick labels.
Planting gardens is fun!
In fact, it deserves some dancing!
It was so exciting to see all of our seeds come up! Sarah liked to crouch down and stare at the little plants just like she saw Mom and Dad doing. I have a feeling she thought we were a little crazy.
Our garden was pretty much a Miracle Grow commercial. The bed below was there when we moved in. It was filled with old soil with some fertilizer added. The above bed was one that we built and filled with Miracle grow soil. The seeds were planted on the same day. Check out the difference in the plants after 2 weeks, especially the radishes!
The radishes were the first veggies to be ready. So yummy!
Soon we were eating whole salads!
We have some unusual things, including purple peppers and purple tomatoes.
Soon, we had a whole forest! We had a 12 inch pumpkin by the beginning of June! We have harvested piles of zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, lettuce, peas, strawberries, and radishes. Coming later we will have sweet potatoes, peanuts, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cantaloupe, and watermelon.
Growing a garden is so rewarding! We have had some trouble with the amazingly abundant water supply here drowning our garden, so we are going to pull some things out and start over for a fall crop. Even with a few failures, we are having fun learning!
