Great Expectations: Spring Planting


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.
