Gardening with the Kids
The kids and I are getting a large vegetable garden ready (we already started some lettuce plants).
Below is a picture of the veggie garden. It was quite beautiful when we moved in last summer, but I had absolutely NO time to do anything about it in the fall. In fact, it was so hectic and busy when we moved in that many of the beautiful tomatoes and red peppers rotted on the vine. :( This entire garden turned into one giant weed patch. So, we've had a lot of catch up work this spring. This photo was taken two weeks ago. The black cloth is weed cloth to stop weeds from growing in the areas we had worked on. Now two weeks later, pretty much the entire garden is weed free.
We should be getting our fruit trees in a couple of weeks. We'll be planting two apple trees and a peach tree out on the side yard next to the driveway area. Last weekend we planted 50 strawberry plants in another bed.
