We didn't start on our garden until May 15 this year. No seedlings, no prep or anything prior to yesterday. And, you know, I think this may be the most successful garden we have ever done!
Yesterday morning we went to the nursery to pick up a few plants.
Liam wanted some marigolds in our garden too... that was his first choice out of all the other pretty flowers. Marigolds are not my favorite, but when Liam selected those, a part of my childhood came back to me. My mom loved marigolds and would always harvest the seeds each fall. And, isn't it tradition to have marigolds line a vegetable garden?
Anyway, we worked hard weeding, tilling, raking, and cleaning up our garden space. Liam was big help and it was so nice to do a family project together. You could see the pride in his face as he sowed seeds and placed the purchased plants in the soil. I hope he grows up to be a green thumb and veggie lover like his dad.
And Liam couldn't end the day without some little boy fun! The sun was setting, but that didn't stop him from enjoying the water just like our plants were.
