Kids Garden 2014

We love to garden and there is nothing better than opening up a mason jar in the middle of winter and enjoying bounty of summer.  We are so glad to have moved by our shop and have an expanded garden.

The other day I was reading in our Baker Creek Seed catalogue and I was excited to see that the owner was sharing that his momma encouraged him in gardening and gave him his own garden spot.  I don’t know why this idea escaped me!  We have always included them in the family’s garden, but giving them their own was a foreign concept.

Since Don was in the field, I talked it over with the kids and they were excited at the idea.  That morning after I tilled our garden, I tilled 4 smaller gardens for the big kids and we went to get some plants and seeds.

I purchased a set of small tools for them to use along with their hoe’s we purchased for them last year.

They all picked out a tomato plant.  Lee – Arkansas Traveler, Grady – Cherry Grape, Jo Anna – Pink Brandywine, and Eli – Jet Star (Because it was an airplane and it was orange, his favorite color!)

They all also picked out peppers and several seeds.  Pumpkins, Carrots, corn, watermelons and cantaloupes were among their favorites.

Clara doesn’t have her own garden yet, but she enjoyed watching.  We thought it was important for them to be big enough to take care of it on their own.  They will be totally responsible for weeding, watering, harvesting and preserving their bounty.

We are still awaiting the arrival of their tiny sprouts.  They have been watching every day, and so far…no weeds!  I am really proud of them!
