Yesterday we planted our garden. It is small but perfect for our family of four. Getting everything together was slightly stressful - Oliver was REALLY trying to "help" with everything. His little hands digging around in the compost trying to plant seeds with me. I don't know if our spinach is going to sprout, since the 1/2" deep sowing was more like 3" deep, but what can you do... those little hands like to help and those little minds like to learn - they need to.
Here is what we planted:
The aforementioned - Spinach
Here is what we still need to plant:
We're also going to plant a blueberry bush. We have a small starter plant that I am going to start out in a pot. We'll most likely do that today.
This is my very first garden. I'm excited to watch it grow and pick and eat my produce.
There is something deliciously magical about planting, growing and eating by the work of your own hands.
It was a sweet weekend with our little family.
I hope that your weekend was sweet too.
