starting our garden
We finally had a beautiful day with no wind this weekend. Perfect weather for starting our garden.
Joel had tilled up the dirt a few weeks ago. He started planting the corn while I went inside to get our little helper up from his nap.
I really didn’t think Levi would be too interested in our gardening project. Lately when we go outside he only wants to do two things: swing or go for a wagon ride. If I am busy doing something else he will stand under the swing or next to the wagon with his arms out begging…please play with me mama!
But Levi’s fun dad talked him into coming over and helping him.
And it turned out that Levi thought planting potatoes was pretty great.
Levi put every potato in a hole. Joel handed them to him one by one.
His favorite part was throwing them in.
And my favorite part was the high five after every successful potato toss. So sweet.
We planted onions too.
Actually, Levi tore his onion apart while Joel planted all the onions…and I took pictures of Joel planting the onions.
I did help though. When Levi remembered that he actually liked his wagon better than gardening, Joel took him on a wagon ride and I planted the lettuce.
But if you want to know the truth…Joel is the real brains behind our garden. He is the farmer after all. I am slowly learning, but most of the time I just beg him to help me or tell me what to do…kind of like Levi begging to be pushed on the swing. 🙂
So the garden is officially started. I can’t wait until it is time to eat all of our yummy vegetables. And I am so thankful to have a little helper this year…he makes gardening even more fun!
