I'm not going to make any excuses for my absence. Just busy - aren't we all?
Just to catch you all up to speed... most recently... we discovered that Lulu has 86 pictures of Justin Bieber in her room. All four walls have pictures as well as the ceiling.
I grew some wheat grass for Easter. This was a practice run to make sure that it would work. Now that Easter is really almost here... we are doing it again!
I made Bri's Easter dress. It is reversible.
Bri started pushing the "mail cart." A history of the mail cart in our family can be seen here and here.
We tilled the garden this past weekend. Then, Bro spent the past two days reminding us to plant vegetables. I promised him that we will are going to buy the vegetable plants in a few days and plant them with him. Precious little fella!
See? You hardly missed a thing!
I found some garden planning software online. You can use it for 30 days for free. It's so super easy to use and totally maps out your garden for you.
Here is what I put together for our family. Look... the program already maps out how much space everything will need.
Obviously we want tomato plants. Lulu wants peas. Bro wants carrots because he is reading The Carrot Seed every night before bed. I'm not sure how the edamames will work out. Watermelon is something the kids will like for sure! I have heard that even kids will eat fresh brussel sprouts... maybe??? Of course I have to have basil. I don't know what I am going to do with the lavender, but I want some. :-)
Based on the harvest schedule for these fruits and veggies... August, September, and October will be fun, busy, healthy months for us!
Are there any experienced gardeners reading?
