I jumped on that right away and shared my desire to be a part of it. A few months later they are done and my family gets to have one! It's not huge--10x5--but I think it's perfect. We are so thrilled to be able to grow some food. Big Sister is especially excited and I'm really excited about the opportunity to teach her my limited knowledge of gardening. I grew up with a garden in our backyard for many years. My mom was an avid gardener. She grew blackberries, corn, beans, peas, lettuce, tomatoes, squash, carrots, strawberries--you name it. And that's not including the fruit trees either. We had an abundance of fresh food when I was growing up. I loved it! I want to have my kids working next to me in my garden.
The problem is, I have no idea how to garden! What have I gotten myself into?? I helped my mom weed, plant seeds and water the plants, but it was always under her direction. We bought a few seed packets last weekend and will see how much space we have after really getting to do some spacial planning this weekend. Despite not knowing anything, I really am excited about the adventure. Now to go get a copy of Gardening for Dummies. Does that book really exist??
Do you know a lot about gardening? Any tips you can give me?
