Hello my pretties!
I think we over did it with the seeds and plants. Who knew home depot could be so exciting for three little munchkins? DQ (aka Drama Queen, aka our 7 year old) picked out a strawberry plant and raspberries and a few seeds packets. Lil Man (our 5.98 year old - birthday coming up! - picked out a strawberry plant, blackberries and a watermelon seed packet. Princess (our 2 year old) picked out - yep you guessed it - a strawberry plant and grapes. Apparently you can never have too many strawberries.
CD (my hubby) is the gardening expert, not I. He grew up on a piece of property with land where they grew their own veggies, fruits and I even think they had chickens for farm fresh eggs. Yum. I'm a suburban girl myself and, unfortunately, I've got a black thumb. I kill every plant that has ever had the misfortune to know me. But this year I'm determined and motivated to get a garden going, keep it alive, and even eat some home grown goodies in the process.
The dilemma: we've got a small backyard and, thus, a limited place to grow these bad boys in a semi- organized fashion.
The answer: Raised Veggie Beds!!!!!!! He he he (sorry honey, I'll help this time I promise!)
