Watch Me Grow

Matt and I do not pretend to know anything about gardening, but we have a lot of fun doing it! We started a garden a few years ago, just planting something to see if it would grow...and it did! So the next year we tried a couple of more things, and a few more things the next and so on. This year we decided to expand the garden and we have a PLAN. That's right a garden plan to increase our yeild (thank you to the Master Gardner, Gaylord, for your very informative presentation!). So far we have beets, carrots, radishes, spinach, lettuce, and brussel sprouts in the ground. Once it gets a little warmer, we'll plant something else. This year is the first year Jeremiah has been super excited about the whole thing. He can't wait to dig in the dirt, plant seeds, and spray it down with water. Here are a few pics from our planting adventure and the frist signs of our beautiful bounty.

This is one of our original plants - Strawberries! Each year they produce a little more than the year before. Matt and Jey have really high hopes for all of the yummy strawberries and therefore don't have the heart to pull them even though they are taking up HALF of the small garden space we have! :-)

Radishes are a comin'! And Jeremiah is excited!?!

Jeremiah is very busy in the garden but manages to pose for a picture.
Jey is diggin' for worms. He tells me I NEED them in my dirt to make my garden healthy. Is he a Master Gardner?
