Kinky Carrots and Kids in the Garden

Planting peas...

This past summer seemed to take on a life of it’s own without much of  it marked in my journal here.  With the weather warming up (or maybe because we really haven’t had winter) my thoughts are turning to what we should put in the garden.  I ran across these pictures and decided I should post about these and hopefully satisfy that urge to work up the compost pile and start digging through the seeds.

Side-by-side...

All lined up...

The little boys play...

Don'tcha love the straight rows? ;0)

The green of spring...

Zayne giving them a drink...

What I loved the most is that the kids actually thought it was really fun!  We continued planting all sorts of things that day.

Some of the squash harvest...

Last but not least we cultivated a new kitchen garden and planted it full of herbs, perennials, tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, onions, and carrots…

Kinky Carrots

The ground is very rocky so most of the carrots were pulled up in funky shapes…much to the kids delight!

I’ll try to keep my excitement down, after-all we have another 4 months before we can actually start working the garden.  :0)

I am linking this to Alphabe-Thursday.  I have missed about half the alphabet but think this will be fun.  This week’s letter is “K”.
