I showed you my garage, I showed you my bookshelf, I showed you the rooms, now its time to see the garden!


The kids love helping move the dirt around, except for Maddie, she swears she sees snakes and ants everywhere. Noah loves to pretend he is a firefighter with the garden house, or to even just dig a hole. Atticus enjoys the outdoors in any setting, though he thinks the leaves are the edible part of the plant. We are growing cilantro, green onions, red peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, zucchini, jalapenos, green beans, sugar snap peas, summer squash, and radishes.

We have a small garden area in our back yard that we share with our neighbors, and as of a few days ago it was just riddled with weeds. Noah and I pulled all the weeds on our side last weekend and Aubrey noticed under the weeds, under the visclean, there was really good dirt! So we are going to grow in planters, others we might plant in the dirt. We are unsure yet, we also share that dirt area with our neighbors and they mentioned they might do something with it. Aswell we want to move when our lease is up in August and we will want to take our plants with us, so maybe the pots are the best idea. ANYWAYS, it will be enjoyable for the kids to see things grow, and we will have our very own produce in the back yard! Much cheaper than buying it.
