Though we're a little late getting started it has been our intention to plant a vegetable garden in the backyard for the kids to take care of. Turns out it's better that we got off to a late start because I'm afraid it would have been doomed from the start as we're learning as we go. This way we just bought some already started veggies and transplanted them into our garden for a head-start. Though I was originally very eager to get started we decided that I probably shouldn't touch the garden too much at this point in the pregnancy, so Matt and Addison had a nice bonding experience getting things going and playing in the dirt. For our first "practice garden" as I lovingly refer to it, we planted one tomato plant, some peppers, parsley, a pumpkin plant, and some yellow onion. We have had mild success so far and will let you know as it progresses!
