We love gardens. Ours is not huge! Dan got it all fixed up this year. Now that the kids are older, I am teaching them the basics and they are having fun and enjoying it! We got some vegetables planted and flowers.
These kids of mine have been bugging me. Mom we need a farm. We want a lot of land to run around in. We want to sell vegetables.
Good, we have a nice size of land here-a garden that needs some help and two animals. Tend to these first!
Our Garden has done really well in the past. Two years ago it was amazing. The kids brought in buckets of tomatoes. And peppers, a few green peppers, white eggplant and we even got summer squash. We tried water melons but they were not sweet at all.
Last year we didn’t do anything. The tornadoes came through about planting time. Every thing sat. And now our garden is in need of help.
As you can see, the garden needs help. The weeds have over come. The fences needs to be replaces. And my children want a garden to plant. So yes for Easter I got them shovels, gloves, watering cans, and seeds. Each designed for their size.
Today they are already weeding the garden. Then Dan will fix it up and we will get plants planted. Last year the tornadoes took a lot away from us (like our favorite tree in the back) this year we are giving our back yard new life! Just like Christ gave us new life at Easter. And this is why I put a shovel in the Easter baskets.
