Kelli, Kelli Quite Contrary...How Does Your Garden Grow?

So I found my camera yesterdy morning. It was in my Sunday School bag (?). I was relieved that it hadn't been lost. Anywho, I thought I would show some pictures of the garden since it was right after I planted it that you saw pics. Things are thriving and it's been really neat to see how involved Avonlea is in helping to water, weed and harvest veggies. Every morning when Lincoln goes down for a nap, the two of us head out back together and work in the garden. Avonlea knows what plants are which and what vegetables/fruits grow on certain plants. She especially loves picking strawberries when they're ripe. It's funny because I've even taught her that she has to wait until things are "ripe" or fully grown to pluck and eat, so I'll hear her wandering around the plants saying things like, "You're not big enought to eat yet"...speaking to a green bean or a cucumber. It's funny. =)

Wow! The garden looks great! I am so impressed. I bet those veggies taste even better knowing you grew them yourself! Some some good stuff for us!

What a neat thing to do with her! Those are the things that she will always remember doing with mommy. I remember that my grandma used to harvest grapes, and then her and my mom would jar jelly. I loved being a part of that process.
