In our second apartment we planted a pretty good-sized garden but we ended up moving before we could harvest any of it.
And so it went...
I told you last year that we had traded in our basketball court for a garden plot, but this year my sweetie vowed that would change. He dug up all the grass between the apricot tree and the small garden and now we have a new area for gardening. We even moved the tool shed! (We'll see how long it takes us to pour the concrete for a basketball court.)
The picture on top is a family tradition. These are pictures of my sweetie leveling the garden with a ladder and Curly riding on top of it. Somewhere in our scrapbooks are other pictures, one of my awesome father-in-law pulling 3-year-old Bossy and another one when my sweetie is the 3-year-old!
Maybe Bossy can pull those pictures for us and I'll post them on the weekend.
There are lots of reasons we plant a garden. I'm pretty sure it usually saves us money (although there have been years when I wonder!). I love going to the store less and being able to pull half my meal from the backyard.
But the number one reason (at least this year) is probably this...you know how normal kids eat apples, oranges, or bananas? Well Baby Doll will pull open the fridge and instead of going for one of the "normal" fruits, she grabs a tomato! I can't wait to let her try the ones straight from the garden!
