Update on our Garden

Our little box of dirt is officially a garden. This weekend we planted our transplants ( 3 tomato, 1 zucchini, 1 yellow squash, 2 cantalope, and 1 watermelon). We also planted a few seeds (snow peas, green beans, and onion). Next week we will plant a few more seeds and put up our plant supports (ours is a vertical growing garden).

Today we received a small turtle sandbox from a fellow freecycler. Carter was so excited when we picked it up. I haven't told him it is a sandbox- we are calling it a turtle garden instead. We needed a place for him to "plant" seeds and play with this tractors and dump trucks. Now that we have plants in the real garden, the turtle will have to keep him busy.

I wanted to do a garden, but Vince convinced me that we have other projects that need attention right now, so....maybe next year! I am determined to learn how to garden before I am 50!
