All three older kids have a small garden space. They are fenced off from everything else so they know what is their space and they are free to do whatever they wish with it. :)
The strawberries are blooming.
New space added to the back of the garden. This has since been planted with zuchini, yellow squash, and tons of cucumbers. I have also added Marigolds through out the garden. :)
Kind of blurry but a little snap pea.
Lettuce, spinach, and radishes. YUM!! The other day the kids begged for a leaf of spinach so I found some yummy little leaves for them. Just one each as most of the plants are still so tiny. They begged for more. lol Later on I overheard Madeline tell Michael don't pick that one its not spinach I tried it a little while ago. Apparently unsure as to what the spinach is they are just sampling greens from the garden. The plant in question was a radish green. :)
The blueberry bushes are doing wonderful. I hated picking all the blooms off but as they are first year it will ensure a larger harvest later. It was so hard to not get the thrid year blueberry bushes I saw at the store last week. They were huge and I wanted to get several!
I could not help getting several (umm 12) plants at the local hardware store. They were having a sale on 5 inch potted vegis for $1. They were really healthy and I purchased several kinds of tomatoes (like I need more!), cayenne pepper, a salsa pepper, tomatillos, and a few other things I have never grown before to see how we like them.
Another new plant this year will be ground cherries. I did not want to purchase seeds online as I don't really want an entire packet since I am lacking for space. I looked around locally but with no luck. A mom in Canada on a forum I am a part of offered to mail me some she had. They arrived two days ago and I am so excited to try them out. I will post an update when they germinate as I have yet to plant them. It has been super rainy here!
