How does your garden grow?

Well, I did it.

I come from a long list of gardeners, family members who can plant anything and have it survive. I don't have their trait. When I touch something, it withers and dies.

This year, I was determined to teach my children about a garden. To let them experience the dirt, the pleasure of watching something grow and the benefits of hard work that comes at harvest time.

So we set out to do a garden.

I bought peat starters so I could start the plants inside. This is them on day one 4/5/09

I watered like I was supposed to and was quickly rewarded with some growth. This is a pic from

They kept growing. As simple as it is for a plant to grow, it's amazing to me. I still can't believe I have not killed the poor things. This is the plants today. 4/18/09

It was a beautiful day today, so we borrowed my father in laws tiller and tilled the garden. It's not done, we need to go at least once more, but I am so pleased.

Here's hoping that I manage to do this right! :)
