Finally Gardening

A few weeks ago my husband and the kids put in the first of the garden, planting chard, broccoli, lettuce, carrots, squash, peppers and tomatoes. Then, it rained for a week, and the garden ended up a massive mud pit. Thankfully, it looks like most of the plants sprouted, though we have not spotted any broccoli yet (of course, since this is the first year we planted broccoli, none of us knows what the sprouts look like :) So, yesterday came phase 2: corn. Here is the corn patch all tilled and ready for seeds.

The crocodile hunter plants his watermelon seeds (harvested from last years watermelon he grew from a seed from a grocery store melon none of us believed would sprout!)
The baby spent her time sampling the dirt.

The queen preferred raking.

And the best part, here is the little princess carefully placing corn in the rows daddy prepared, and following along behind her is the baby, carefully picking out the seeds and eating them!


  1. Great photos! I have volunteer pumpkins from a grocery pumpkin I left by the side of the house last fall. We're watering and hoping for unexpected success!

  2. Thanks for sharing the pics! How exciting for the kids to have their own garden.
