Daddy and his girls
Thanks Nana & Tata! This was so much fun! We'll post pictures when they start to grow soon.
We figured with our professional strawberry and flower planting skills, we should venture into the world of actual vegetable gardening. I went to a Relief Society gardening enrichment group a couple of weeks ago and learned about boxed/sq ft/ raised bed gardening. I came home with a vision that night. A vision to plant a successful vegetable garden. I was determined to do it the very next day. You know the feeling when you decide you are going to do something. Nothing was going to stop me. .... .but then I forgot about it for a week or so:) Oopsie. You know how it is. Thankfully, I remembered again on Saturday:) We went to the Home Depot and got all of our supplies, plants and seeds. Tonight we worked on it together as a family and now it sits in our backyard waiting to grow(or die-hopefully not the second option).The kids had lots of fun doing this. We all did. I think it will definitely be something we always remember and I'm happy that we FINALLY did this. Its something we've always just talked about, but we had never put the words into actions. I hope its a success! Wish our plants luck! :) Here are pictures of our families very first veggie garden. . .
The box Joey built. Good work my strong musclely man.

Our lovely vegetable garden models
We planted tomatoes, cucumbers, onion bulbs, peppers, cilantro(I think we've got a good salsa garden growing!). We also planted some herbs for me to use in cooking(Yes, I actually cook now. I'm kinda growing up I guess:). Those were all transplants. We also did carrot and green bean seeds. So, most are transplants and we tried a couple with seeds. So, we basically just have to keep most of them alive. . .we took the easier road:) So, there you have it. I'll keep you updated on our progress. Well, unless it all dies. Then I won't update you. That would be embarassing.
