This year way back in Spring we panted a community garden with some of the lady's in my ward. I rode along to the nursery with my friend Kristen, she has been doing a garden every year since she was a kid. She was going to teach me, so we went and picked some plants that had already been started. She said that would be easier for us to do. We picked four kinds of peppers, six tomato plants, cantaloupe, water melon, pumpkin, yellow squash, and zucchini. It was so much fun to plant them with my kids. They helped dig the little holes and then we went over ever other day to water and weed. I don't think my kiddos really understood what was happening until things started to grow. And grow they did. We had a huge pumpkin before we had anything else. Kristen talked to a farmer she knows who sells pumpkin and he told us to cut it off because it was too soon and it would suck all of he nutrients out of the vine and we would not get any more starts. Anyway these pictures are from about a month ago when things first started to really appear. I will have to put up more pictures of what has come up now. It has been so much fun. I have decided I will be growing a garden every year. The taste of the tomato's alone is worth all of the effort. And who knew I love zucchini.
