Let the sowing begin!

Tomorrow we will till our garden patch. It'll be expanded to another 15' long.

We can't wait to start planting stuff!

Today, we did start planting stuff. Remember a while back I mentioned that our daughter is going to have her own garden strip this year. We were going to make a raised bed for her. We tossed that idea out of the window. We gave her the strip along the garage. We had our herb garden there for the past few years. From now on, our herbs are going to be in pots, on the "greenhouse" shelves. This is so we could have fresh herbs all year round.

This morning, we went to this place where this lady sold the seedlings flats. My daughter picked the things she wanted to plant. We gave suggestions, but she decided on her own. The first thing she picked was 2 cubes of marigold; yellow and orange. OK. Then she picked a cube of red snapdragon. I think that's the name. I am not good at remembering flowers. She wanted to plant tomatoes, but the place did not have grape tomatoes. We'll do that later.

She has been eating a lot of salad. We suggested maybe she can plant a few plants that go in a salad. So she got lettuce and cucumbers. We have carrots seeds that she could use. She also picked broccoli.

A full garden bed for a six years old.

Anyway. We cleaned out the strip. Everyone chipped one. Even my almost 3 year old son, with his dump truck. He helped transferring the soil around. ;)

Then, my husband showed our daughter what to do. It was great watching them working together. She loved it! When they were done, she cleaned up. Then she stood in front of her garden bed and sang the plants a lullaby. Huh?

She said the plants need a lot of loving. That's why she was singing to them. :D

Pictures coming up next.
