In the Garden

Everything is growing, growing, growing in our yard! Its been a lot of fun having a yard. It certainly is more work, but its something we can all do together, and it seems to give us a sense of satisfaction after working on it. We're learning a lot since we didn't know a thing a year ago!

Here's little Anna digging in the dirt.

Our yard came with 5 raised beds. We've cleaned out and planted seeds in 2 of them, and have strawberries growing from last year. We're still working on cleaning out 2 of the beds for tomato and pepper plants, and pumpkins (hopefully).

Here's the crew cleaning out weeds.

The huge flower bed in our front yard a few weeks ago.

Here are the girls chewing on some rhubarb from the garden. They look like such people of the earth. I think its pretty yucky by itself. We're going to try a strawberry rhubarb pie this week.

Here's some of the raspberries blooming.

Some strawberries starting to grow.

Our first little broccoli plants that we planted from seeds! (And a ton of weeds.) This whole plants growing from tiny seeds is quite amazing. I mean really, how does this happen?

We had a little rhubarb patch at our house growing up, Stephanie, and your Grandma loved it. She would make pies from it and we would chew on the stalks just like the girls. Some people call it pie plant. Alot of people today have never heard of it. -Grammy

Stephanie, the gardens look great! I'm so glad that you guys are able to garden together. You are so blessed to already have the raspberries and strawberry plants!

Stephanie, my aunt makes rhubarb bread. I've asked her for any rhubard recipies she'd be willing to share. I'll send them your way. ;) All the gardening looks like great family time, wonderful memories for the kids to have of spending time with mom and dad.

Mom, I didn't know you grew up eating rhubarb! We ended up making rhubarb muffins and they were reallllly good.

Thanks Nat! We are really reaping the benefits of the owners work with the strawberries and raspberries. Its nice :)

Thanks, Kyle! They are good memories for me at least so far. :)
