August 29, 2008

Ginny and Tyler had a blast pulling carrots up from the garden today. We also picked green onions, lettuce, dill, parsley and broccoli (is it normal for kids to love broccoli and ask for thirds like my kids do?). A few months ago we picked beans and tomatoes and last year this time we were enjoying melons and cucumbers (some we even pickled). It has been fun trying my hand at gardening and it has become a family affair to plant, water and weed. I do not like the continual weeding that needs to be done but my kids, however, still think its fun to uproot the “rumor weed”. I appreciate any help I can get.

The last couple of days we have been pulling out weeds and getting the garden ready for the next seasons crop. Wish me luck....

Wow!! Sounds like ya'lls gardening is going GREAT!! We are picking and enjoying corn and have had cantelope over the last few weeks. Ended up with only ONE okra plant (BooHoo!) so, I think I got 4 or 5 okra! We have a couple of little watermelon that we MAY get to enjoy.
Wish I had a couple of your "helpers" to help ME pull weeds!
