So I planted our first garden at our house back in May and I’m very happy with the results! Braden loves to be in the garden with me and help dig. Just trying to teach him to pull weeds and NOT the vegetables! He loves to dig with some help from Dollarama shovels and some little gardening tools I bought for him at Heritage Park the other day (more on that later!)
The corn never survived…or blended in too much with the weeds to tell a difference! Some of the peas didn’t grow but everything else is looking good! Next year I will have to mark my rows so that we actually know where things are to make rototilling and weed control easier in the beginning stages.
We sure are blessed to live in such a beautiful place, aren’t we? For those wondering, we’re an hour east of Calgary on an acreage. We built our house 1 mile west of the family farm.
Braden and I get out and weed at least once a week. I can do it for about an hour, but then the belly and/or the knees give out and I’m done….and have to come in and lay down for an hour or so to recover!
So I’m pretty proud of my little garden and I can’t wait for fresh veggies at the end of the summer! We’ll have peas, carrots, green beans, romaine lettuce, onions, and red potatoes!
Then we came out after supper and Jay and Braden hilled the potatoes! I’m so thankful for the summer weather we’ve had this week. It’s making all of us much happier, especially Braden!
P.S. Lazy mommy took all these pictures, unedited, with her iPhone. Not bad eh!? Speaking of “eh” Happy Canada Day to us from you. Here’s our Canada Days from years past and present. (Okay, his 2012 picture is from last weekend…but we aren’t going out for celebrations today because we’re going to church and then mama has to go back to work!
