We planted a veggie garden out front, which has become something of an annual tradition. B Daddy built a lovely raised bed for us and between it and some odd and end containers we are the proud caretakers of 5 tomato plants (four started from seed - fingers crossed they thrive), 4 string bean plants (also from seed), 3 pepper plants, 3 cucumber plants, some lettuce and carrot seedlings as well as rosemary, basil, mint and cilantro. The kids enjoy watering everything and harvesting mint leaves daily. We shall see if I have enough tomatoes to keep us away from grocery store tomatoes this summer...that's the goal!
And thanks to those of you who took the time to comment or email me about the college post from last week. I was so encouraged by your thoughts and perspectives. The treehouse project is how we are using our new found "fun" money this month! ;)
