Our Garden

This is the first year we have put out a garden.  We tore down our old shed and put up a new one.  We decided to turn the ground where the old shed was into our garden area.  It has worked out great.  We (well...mainly James) planted potatoes, various tomatoes, red onions, white onions, radishes, carrots, corn, watermelon, peppers, and strawberries.  So far we have enjoyed some onions and radishes. 

We decided to plant some herbs as well.  James and Monkey, with a little help from Lulu and Lil, built a bench to sit our pots on.  Lulu and Lil, with a little help from Mom, planted lavender, basil, mint, aloe, oregano, and thyme.  I really like how it all turned out.  It looks really nice on my patio.

The girls have been catching fireflies each evening.  They put them in their bug boxes they made with their Daddy last year.  Each night they ask if they can keep them.  But we open the lid and watch the all fly away.  It's fun to watch our kids enjoy things that we enjoyed when we were young too.
