planting weekend

The May long weekend is planting time. I made three vegetable planter boxes (single-handedly – literally). Malli helped me fill them with dirt and both kids helped me plant this year’s crop: kale, chard, lettuce, peas, beans, other beans, tomatoes (upside-down and right-side-up), basil and parsley. And this year we’re staying in town so we should be able to reap what we sowed.

One response to “planting weekend

  1. There is certainly something wonderful in being able to grow and eat your own food. I’m pleased you’ll be around to reap what you’ve sown this year. That’s always our issue too.
