How is your garden growing?
We expanded our garden from two beds to 6 beds this year. Last year was a “test” year for us, as we have a lot of deer around. It did well, so we decided to make it bigger and better! It was a family experience, as we had the kids start almost all of the garden early in the year from seed. We used our cardboard egg cartons and made a day of it. It was so much fun watching the seeds grow indoors for the weeks leading up to planting day. Planting day was also a group effort – the kids seem to take such pride in what “they” have grown. The garden has really taken off in the last few weeks, and we are on our second harvest of herbs and veggies. Tomatoes aren’t quite there yet, but there are a LOT on the plants. I see canning in our future! Hope your garden is as happy and that you are enjoying yours as much as we are enjoying ours! Happy Harvesting!
