Now that summer has officially started for us, I'm going ahead and apologizing if my posts are not quite as frequent. Preschool is over and summer fun has started!
About a week ago I took Charlie to the store to pick out some plants and start a small garden in our backyard. We planted some parsley and mint. We also planted, organic greenbeans, cucumbers, squash, and roma tomatoes. We are having some much fun watching everything sprout up and get tall. It will be even more exciting when we actually have some fresh veggies to pick from our garden.
I am by no means a green thumb, but I have really loved watching my child learn from getting his hands in the dirt, and seeing his excitement each morning as he peeks out to see if his veggies are growing! Hopefully, growing his own will encourage him to eat a little more.
By far the funniest part of this experiment was when we opened the bags of organic top soil to put in our garden. Organic = stinky.... there are only so many ways to rename poop....in the end it still smells like poop!
Do you have a garden? If so, share some tips with me!
