Garden Time

We are so excited to be starting our first garden! We purchased some heirloom seeds from a few companies and have gotten them started indoors.  This is recommended up here because of the cold weather.  If you plant directly in the ground and another frost comes, the plants can die.  So about 2 weeks ago we started our seeds.

About 5 days later our first seeds sprouted!!

And they keep growing!!

We will be planting them into boxes next week.  We do not want to dig up the ground here being that this is not our property.  Jason found some great old wood boxes from an old cotton mill that we will fill with good dirt and put them in....a box for each veggie and herb!  The kids  have picked out which veggie and herb they want to be responsible for.  They will add compost weekly, weed, water and prune.  A great learning experience for all of us!!
