the big girls plant, too!

Elizabeth and Abbi are planting tomatoes and peppers. The rest of the plants are being started over by the porch in those same little seed starting dealies that Evelyn is planting over in that other corner.

Abbi planted these peppers, herself. They will be GREAT in Andrew's salsa!

Not just a box of dirt :D

Doesn't everyone garden in all their finery? Her highness, Evelyn, wouldn't have it any other way. She is pictured here putting in her peas and cilantro. She is already begging to go get the trellis for the peas, even though they are just peaking their little heads up through the seedling cups.

The yard

Now to prepare the bed!

Now the Dirt Stuff (Mulch, Peat Moss, Pearlite, and Soil)





getting started

It all started with a bored homeschooler. Her mom said to find something to do and then research it, and we'll see if we can make it happen. She found the Square Foot Gardening website and we were off....

See, there's the bored homeschooler with the drill.

Now our box is ready! The girls were joking about the Mommy in the Box, "And if you call now, we'll double your order"

We're really ready to get started, now....stay tuned!
