So we're planning our own version of the afore mentioned garden. I want my boys to have their own garden plot so they can get excited about gardening, gain some responsibilities with taking care of it, take pride in their work, and enjoy the fruit (or veggies, in this case) of their labor. So yesterday we got started. And here they are working hard getting their garden ready.
I was really surprised at how much Bryce worked. Of course after he filled the wheelbarrow with the grass I dug up, he started flinging it out, but still...
Ground all turned over and ready for compost.
Mixing the compost into the soil.
We've since planted some seeds, watered, and are planning on picking up some flowers to plant as well. We're excited about our new garden!
