We put our plants in for or garden. This year we are doing Corn, Pumpkins, Carrots and strawberries.
The tall plants are strawberries, and we bought them that way

We are also doing an apple tree.
Getting everything ready

Digging the hole

Filling with dirt

Everyone helping

Ta-Da! All done!
Now if the boys would  leave it alone. We're hoping they leave it alone long enough for it to get it's roots down and strong.

Happy Spring!!

Spring in these parts means it's time to prep!
So Greg got out in the cold to get to work, it didn't take very long before Isaac decided that his Daddy needed some help.

Because Isaac has been so into helping in the garden Greg decided to get him his own "My size" shovel.

Got all the Grass dug up

Pavers down

Top soil going down

All prepped!
now to wait, to make sure it's not going to freeze again, and we can plant!

This is a picture that Gary took

This is what Ashley did while we were outside!

Here we go!
Happy Gardening!

Good practice

Well we've had a few frosts now so we decided it was time to reap what we've sown...sewn?!...sown...

The beans didn't make it, so we had to just pull them up =(

The carrots didn't do too bad. They were really pretty actually.

and not a bad size either. At leas they looked like carrots!

The boys had fun pulling them up

Our little supply of carrots

Gary totally loved them!

Even our picky eater ate a few. There's just something about eating something you grew.

This is now what our Garden is. A big "dirt box"

We feel like we got some good practice out of our little starter garden and are anxious for spring when we can start over and be more successful!!

They're really coming up!

Greg and Isaac thinned out the carrots

The beans are taking off! I can't believe how fast they're growing!

It's exciting to see the progress .... at least it is to us!

Look what we found this morning!!
They sure are taking off!


Which we're obviously going to thin a bit

It's so exciting to see them sprout and take off so fast. It seems that every time we go out to check on them they are noticeably bigger! The boys have been amazing at leaving them alone and only digging in the dirt that next to the garden. They love to help water every day and love to go check on it every morning!

When We're Helping

The boys decided to help daddy dig out some more grass yesterday
First Isaac gave it a shot

All he got was dirt...but he got something!

Then Gary wanted a turn

He decided Daddy's shovel was a little big.

They were out with that shovel for almost an hour! It was very cute, and very amusing to watch them try and use a shovel that was twice their size.
