Fun in the Garden


We moved into a new house at the beginning of April and one of our goals was to have a garden. In the past I have not had much luck with gardening. In fact, you could even say I have a black thumb. My grandmother used to have the most beautiful plants, it was like an art to her. So we started by sewing some seeds the first week of April and lucky for us, it has been raining like we live in Seattle! Usually this time of year we have already been put on city water restrictions! Needless to say, our little garden has grown into something beautiful! I love that I can share with the girls the importance of self reliance and how it can affect our lives for the better.
Our pepper plants are starting to grow
Our watermellon, none so far :(

First we made sure our raised box was tilled and ready for plants!

We have TONS of zucchini
Our first little Thai chili!


Its amazing what some rain can do!

  1. So jealous. We had a huge garden in our last house. I am desperate to put one in here. We have so many mature trees so it's hard to find a sunny spot.
