Mary Mary Quite Contrary...
...how does your garden grow?
Justin had gotten some free plants from the horticulture department at the community college where he works. So we thought we would give it a go. He whipped up some raised beds. (He is becoming quite the carpenter actually! More on that later!) We filled them with some gardening soil... and there ya have it! I think we watered the garden maybe 10 times. It seems relatively effortless. And we have some cucumbers, tomatoes, and watermelon!
The boys absolutely love it as well! There isn't a better way to get kids to eat their veggies than to have them grow them themselves. It is also a great way to talk to the boys about how God grows us and weeds us and waters us- so that we can bear fruit for His glory.
I think next year we are going bigger!
PS- Get a look at those "art" hands! Those things are looking rugged.
