Preston & Noah were anxious to water the plants with their new watering cans. The only problem was, we didn't plant the plants yet. :) It was very bright outside......what a beautiful day it was!
The boys were helping me by bringing the plants over to me so I can plant them.
They were putting soil in the pots for mommy. My big helpers!
The funny part is, they were having so much fun doing this for me!
Noah got tired and went in the house, but Preston continued to help me the whole time. He even got a chair to get more comfortable.
Preston was just as excited as I was to get this garden going. He amazed me by how much he wanted to help and be by my side the whole time.
This is just the beginning of all the plants we planted. I know I will have to re-plant some when they grow to be much bigger, but in the meantime, this is what I had to start off with.
I have an area on my side yard that I want to clear out with all the weeds and overgrown plants coming from my neighbors yard. My hubby will build me some raised plantar boxes so we can plant seeds for other fruits & vegetables that wouldn't grow so well in pots. Hopefully we can accomplish this by next weekend because I'm anxious to get this all completed and get started.
This is going to be so much fun! The best part is, the kids have that excitement and want to help me. Not only will I be teaching them about the whole process of how a garden grows and all the hard work involved, it will also be teaching them how grateful we should be for the food God has provided for us.
I planted: Tomatoes (cherry & beefsteak), green bell pepper, red bell pepper, small pumpkins, crookneck squash, summer squash, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, peppermint, basil & parsley.
I have a lot more I want to plant once I get my raised beds done. I will update you once I have it completed. Wish us luck for a prosperous garden! :)
