Great Expectations: Spring Planting

IMG_1845

Julia was so excited to help set up the green house and do some garden planning.

There’s nothing like starting seeds and setting high hopes on their future sprouts.  I guess there’s a metaphor for raising kids there too.

There’s also nothing like setting up a tablecloth on your kitchen floor and covering it with with dirt and seeds and letting your kids help.

I think I went a little crazy yesterday.

Thank goodness floors, tablecloths, and kids are washable. I’m thinking that the learning experience was well worth the temporary disaster area.

Now we have a nice little tray of sunflowers, one bean, tomatoes from a friend, oregano, rosemary, basil and corn.  I’m not sure if any of these will survive, but my little helpers and I will try our hardest to get these into the ground in May.
