hopefully not another crop failure
We are still sick here. Ugh. Everyone is slowly getting better, but it has been a long week. I even got sick yesterday. Just a cold, so I am thankful for that…but man, it stinks to be sick in the summer!
You wouldn’t want to see any pictures of us this week. We are a wreck. So, here are a few of us planting pumpkins before we went on our “vacation”.
Pumpkins are my favorite thing to grow in our garden. I love having lots of pumpkins around in the fall. This is the beginnings of our little pumpkin patch.
Joel always laughs at me because I get so excited about planting pumpkins and then he usually ends of doing all the work. But, Levi thinks that gardening is his and daddy’s job. And really, who would document our memories if I wasn’t taking the pictures? I promise I’ll water and pull weeds, honey!
Griffin wants to be part of the action so badly. Instead he has to be contained in his walker because otherwise his mouth would be full of dirt. Someday, little boy.
“Look mom! I have pumpkins on my head.” 🙂
Levi watches everything his daddy does so carefully. He doesn’t miss anything.
And when he’s not watching his daddy he is helping and trying to be just like him.
And this is what Griffin and I did. Stand in the middle of the garden and watch the boys work. We were so helpful.
Our garden has been quite a huge failure this year. The heat and drought has been so hard on it. Bummer. So I am hoping that my pumpkins make up for the rest of my crop failures. I am quickly learning that gardening may not be my best skill!
