Gardening

Some of you may have seen my facebook and saw that I (we) are attempting a garden this year.  I remember my parents gardening when we were younger and my mom can bring almost any plant that has been in my home back to life and David's parents have a beautiful garden every year.  I do not have a green thumb but I am thinking/hoping/wishing there has to be some green in me somewhere because I have not given up hope yet! 

I love the idea of gardening and we love to visit the farmers market every week.  We have canned tomatoes and apples the last couple of years and try very hard to keep fresh fruits and veggies on our table.


So this summer we joined a community garden with some friends and Noah and I headed to Bomgaars to fill up our cart and came out with some:
cherry tomato plant (my must)
green pepper plant (David's request)
zucchini plant
onion plants
sweet corn seed (Noah's request)

David's mom gave us some of her leftovers:
jalapeno plant
'Better Boy' tomato plant
carrot seeds
spinach seeds

Then recruited some experienced gardeners (Grandma Carolyn and Bucko) to help plant our seeds and plants.  We had a great time gardening now we just need to keep watering and hope that something, out of all that, grows!!

It will be fun to follow your gardening adventure. We have attempted gardening twice and both times learned we like the idea but the reality wasn't what we had hoped for us. We enjoyed our three strawberries though.. (haha) We have to stick to the Farmer's Market. Good luck Elder Family!
