My first garden is a success

After taking the kids to the Farmer’s Market a few times a week over the last few years, I realized that we needed to have our own garden.  The kids are constantly asking for snacks, even as they are eating their meal.  I figured that if we grew our own food that I would never say no to, they could snack all they want!  I told John I wanted a garden last spring.  He said, if we are going to have a garden, we have to do it right.  Translation:  His way.  It didn’t happen last year and I was pretty bummed.  All winter long I told him that if he wanted it done a certain way, that he had to help me get it done or I was doing it by myself.  So we got it done and I have gotten things planted.  Not as much as I wanted, but it is my first time.  When I saw the first plants sprout, I got so excited!  Today I went out and with the kids help, we weeded the garden.  Now it looks great.  So far, we have green beans, romaine lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, snap peas and watermelon.  I think that is everything.  We also have tomatoes and peppers that aren’t outside yet.  I’m so stoked that my garden isn’t failing {yet, anyways}.

And, I just couldn’t help but share this picture of the sky from earlier this evening.  It is so beautiful!
