Last weekend was a long holiday weekend. We really wanted to get the garden in. This is the third year we will have a vegetable garden in the back corner of our yard. The first year was wonderful. The second year....not so much. The kids really like it. They love checking on the progress. I think they are even more inclined to eat the stuff that comes out of the back yard. (Like kid #1 and his dislike of all green beans, except garden ones.) I like the idea of fresh veggies in the backyard.
My DH and Kid #1 do all the prep work. They get the soil ready and the rows set. The girls and I do the planting. (For the sake of marital peace, DH has done a fair amount of planting outside the garden space.)
All and all it was a good weekend. I enjoyed being outside and getting the work done.
