Oh How Lovely is our Garden

During our Christmas break our family dug up our sweet potatoes. We had a pretty good crop. I especially liked the ones that look like long poops. Justin and Tyler enjoyed using Ryan's new shovel that he got for Christmas from Justin. I actually think we need to buy another because the boys keep fighting over it. Our worms in the surrounding area were ginormous and our soil was black and lush. A very good sign. Hopefully it will stay that way until we plant something else in the area.

Our garen is lush and green now. We have lettuce coming out of our ears. We have spinach and onions, carrots, herbs, and broccoli. Our greenhouse is in full swing too. Anyday now we will start picking snap pea and strawberries. Mmmm. Delish! I love our garden, but the best part is eating the fresh goods and sharing them. Justin's teacher has already asked me for some lettuce so she doesn't have to buy any. I don't think many people garden, but it's more than that. I think that people in AZ don't know that you can garden here. It's quite cute actually.

  1. Thats funny, a lot of people in her in WA think its hard to have a garden here because of the lack of sun. Just excuses!
