Green Thumb or Not?

We shall see!

We decided to put a garden in this year.  We planted it about a month ago and I am just that behind in blogging about it.  The last time we had a garden was in 2003.  I vowed to never have a garden again because they are soooo much work. 

As you can see, the hubby broke me down and I agreed!  Sure he’ll help me…just as he did when planting it.  He LOVES supervising!  It’s what he does best.

Me “really” making sure that I am planting right.  Big Daddy kept telling me the plants weren’t lining up.  I just don’t think it’s that big of a deal but apparantly, Big Daddy does.

This one – kept disappearing!  I can tell he’s gonna help a lot when I need it!

Everytime Alysia’s “friend” comes over we put him to work it seems like.  AND, he keeps coming back…

Neighbor girls giving us a hand.  It got really boring, really quick for them though.  I told one of them she could come back everyday and help me weed, etc.  I haven’t seen her since :)

Mr. Parker was a big help digging holes – IN ALL THE WRONG SPOTS!  My thoughts?  “At least he’s entertained and not trampling our hard work.

Looky there – I have proof that he “supervised!”

Where’s Alysia ?  Behind the camera.  My kids never work….  I do have to admit that she did get dirty that day though.  She dug right along with me.   And she was in a pleasant unteenager like way!  It was so very nice!!  DSC08794

Next, I’ll post some pics of how things are coming along.  Our pumpkins are going CRAZY already!  I’m excited to see how those turn out!

I've got to get my garden going, just planted flowers so far. I wish I had that much "help"! Good luck!

Hey there, following along from ECE. I've enjoyed having a look around and getting to know you. Your little ones are just adorable. And the box thing, hilarious. Mine are the same way and the bigger the box, the longer the fun lasts.
