I have wanted a garden for a long time. I love being outside in the yard and getting my hands dirty. There's also something wonderfully fantastic about cooking and eating the food you've grown yourself. I was very excited to finally see this dream happen as we planted our very first little garden. I have to mention of course that I do have a gardener-in-crime (my mother) who does AT LEAST half the work of planting/maintaining the garden. Very nice, since gardening can kinda be a lot of work.
I was fortunate enough to receive three beautiful garden boxes made by none other than Papa Dueck. With a little nudge from my mom, we managed to get the lovely boxes prepped and planted.
The kids all helped as well, which I totally loved! Nothing better than working in the yard with my kiddos by my side!!
They got to plant starter plants and tiny little seeds, and of course make stick labels ...
They learned about watering just the right amount ...
They were wonderful and eager little gardeners.
And then the waiting began:-)!
