Gardening an Family affair

Dumping the dirt
Our family decided at Ostara to grow a garden in our backyard this year.  I haven't had a garden since I was a young teen.  This has been a great experience for us as a family.  We started with finding the right spot and arranging boards into a rectangle shape.  Even Poppy came out to help with the project.  They boys love digging up the dirt inside the garden area, to get it ready for our plants!  We have an over abundance of tomato plants started.  Also ready for planting the cucumbers and zucchinis.  In a few week the peppers my sister asked me to plant and the green beans should be ready to move outside too.  I'm hoping the kids will stay interested in gardeing and continue to help out and have fun. 
They certainly have lots of plans.
  • Monkey wants to build a fence to keep the deer out.  (Not happening this time, maybe next year)
  • Potato has informed me that "We have to pull the weeds from our garden mommy."
  • Ladybug and Duckling are looking forward to helping pick the veggies.

Ready to go!

Hope you enjoy the pictures of our labor.  And we hope to enjoy the fruits (rather veggies) or our labor later.
