We planted our garden last weekend! Last year we planted from seed, but started too late, and we got nothing. As in, tons of zucchini and a few tomatoes but nothing else. Oh, and two watermelons that were too grainy and mushy to eat. This year we took the easy way out and bought our veggies in pots. We may try seeds again, probably will, but this year we just wanted to see if we can get some more benefit out of the garden and maybe, possibly, make our money back. It's a doubtful thing, but we're trying.
The boys wanted to help. They were really great, watering each plant after we put it in.
Moments like these, the boys with their dad, they make me incredibly nostalgic. Prepare for more photos than you ever needed to see. The cuteness may hurt your eyes.
Handsome Hero is always a very serious man.
I love how seriously Jack takes his watering, even while Handsome Hero is a total goof.
Not now, Dad. I'm concentrating.
Then Jack would carry them both back. One of Nate's few phrases is "too heavy!"
What a sweetie. This is one five-year-old with a heart to serve others.
When they got back, Nate would walk through the cucumber trellis a few times before he was ready to water.
He watched big brother to know just what to do.
Nate likes to understand things. He doesn't want to be left out.
Another plant lives because of the combined powers of Wonderkids Jack and Nate.
This is one of my very favorite pictures.
Oh, be still my heart. Can I freeze them?
