Because I was at my wits end. I wanted them to help clean up the back yard and I while I was in the shed I saw all the stuff we needed (which will save money because it is all ready there). With out thinking I said if you pick up we can plant seeds. So they did a fair job and wanted to get planting.
We got the starter trays out and grabbed leftover seed packets of cilantro, oregano, lettuce, beans, and jalapenos. Both big boys helped me put the seeds in rows and control the baby who were taking the seeds out of the rows.
But there were just to many hands. Evan grabbed the camera and took pictures to help.
A lot of help. We also have many pictures of feet, I will spare you.
Now I know this does not sound much like a garden. Lets go back to the top where I said I am not really up for a big garden. I have done it years before and I am not doing it this year. I say now.
I have also done a large planter thing before and these type of seed are perfect for it. Plus it is easier to care for.
I am looking forward to have it going again and the nice weather was great for sitting out starting the seeds in.
A small thing all I have to do is water, I can manage, I can enjoy.
