We are so excited by all this sunshine and warmth! 🙂 It feels like spring and it’s motivated us to plant a garden this year. We tried last year late in the summer by planting some cucumber and basil plants. And we actually got a few cucumbers to eat. 🙂 Since we all love cucumbers in this house we decided to grow them again this year and are hoping to have a much longer harvesting time. We are starting from seed and are also going to plant carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, green onions, garlic, basil and cilantro.
The boys helped fill the box with soil. One shovelful at a time. Until Daddy got impatient and poured the soil in. 😉 Then we planted the cilantro pod. The boys both helped dig holes and put seeds in the soil.
They are both so interested in the process. G planted the green onion seeds and then they smoothed out the soil. After all the work was done, G got to help water our seeds for the first time. (Can you see the look of “stop taking pictures and turn the water on?”) We have our first planting of the season completed! Hopefully the weather will continue to be spring like, so they will sprout and start growing! 🙂 Once that was done we enjoyed some much needed play time!
Then we weeded the area we plan on planting the rest of our veggies before some family soccer in the back yard. These family days sure are nice. It feels like during the week we run from place to place and from dinner to bed without getting to really spend any time together. These few days we have at home together are priceless!
