Z and I sat down with paper, pencil and our seed packets and finally planned the garden. A few weeks ago we prepared the beds (although they need to be fertilized) and hope to plant some early seeds this weekend! In the house we have some seedlings going and Z has been doing a great job taking care of them. Although I never have any luck with seedlings, it is a good experience for the children and hopefully this year will be different. So far we have planted cilantro, some flowers, cherry tomatoes, pumpkins and swiss chard.
In our garden this year we will be planting: beans, peas, sugar pumpkins, carrots, swiss chard, cucumbers and zucchini And in pots we will have lettuce, arugula, cherry tomatoes, basil, cilantro, parsley, mint and rosemary. Z has given his little garden to Lil'C and has decided the big garden will be shared by he, Daddy and I ;) I'd like one more small bed but I don't think this is the year, I'll probably just add another pot.
Welcome to Raising Z and Lil' C, a little blog all about raising my 6 year old son and my three year old baby girl. I am a former teacher and now a SAHM. I love to write about our journey towards a more simple life, our daily struggles, share cute stories and love to share good ideas when I find them. I hope you will join me on the ups and downs of this journey called motherhood.
