Hayden took his spiral and drew everything in sight.
While we were in the grown up class, the speaker said something like..."If you're new at gardening, grow cherry tomatoes. If you can't grow cherry tomatoes...we can't help you."
I leaned over to Aaron and said, "Well...might as well load up the kids, honey."
We planted multiple packs of cherry tomatoes this summer and got like...six tomatoes?
We came home and finished planting our rows of fall garden plants into our newly tilled garden spot.
Try, try again...we have about worn out that motto.
But I don't care.
We're going to keep at it.
In the class today the speaker mentioned how good gardening is for kids. How rewarding.
I love that they are learning about hard work. Delayed gratification. The joy of feeling like you took care of something and were rewarded by the fruit of your labor.
Here we go again...on yet another garden adventure.
Speaking of gardening...we're learning to compost on September 19. Thomas Supercinski is offering a free class. Our family and several others are joining together to learn how to turn garbage into soil!
If you want to come, let Thomas know. We'd love to learn with you!
Anyone else growing a fall garden? If so...what cha plantin'?
