about a week and a half ago, when it was sunny and not rainy, we spent our sunday afternoon together as a family. it was such a lovely day. we were all feeling well. the sun was shining beautiful. it felt like spring was on it's way. so, we took advantage of it and planted our garden. when we first looked at this home, both the mister and i instantly thought of using the koi pond as our garden plot so, after ten large bags of potting soil all we had to do was wait for the perfect day to plant. here's how it went...
plotting out what should go where
these little white rocks were left at the bottom of the pond.
we thought they would make good dividers.
cherry + roma tomatoes
(Qcumbers is how the little miss spelled it)
we also bought 2 preying mantis' egg cases to eat all the icky bugs around here
we ended our day with this book we found a few weeks back at the used book sale at our local library. "who goes there in my garden?" by ethel collier. it was a great book to show the kiddo's what will be happening in our garden.
and guess what?
just a week and a half later. we are super excited for the rest of our goods to sprout and have a full garden we can use on a daily basis.
