Let's Get Growing!

I am amped that we have started our garden and in just a few short weeks we will have scrumptious fresh veggies available.
This is our plot before...

Here is our busy little gardener getting down to business. I am sure she will love helping her daddy out this year.

Don't you just love her little digger set?

looks like a great garden! We did something similar this year and I am AMAZED at how fast everything has grown. And it is so fun to grow your own food! :)

How fun! If I had a backyard, I would have already planted lots and lots of veggies. Currently, I have a strawberry plant and a tomato plant (along with herbs and other flowering plants) on my balcony.

I cannot wait for when things start blooming!

Nice! I can't wait to hear how the tomatillos turn out. I love them in salsa but can't always find them at the food store. Happy gardening!

How cute! Looks fantastic. We're peppery people too! We love lot's of spice. E looks so cute. Gardening is so much fun for children and best of all they learn where food comes from.

Just ask your Mother-in-law. I have a good and easy recipe for pickles. I will drop it off to you.

Wow! That is awesome! I didn't know you had so much outdoor space! I gardened with my dad with I was E's age and beyond and have really fond memories of spending that time in the evenings with him.
