And you reap the benefits!! I put in my garden April 3rd (my birthday) and it is just now exploding with life!
Kaylee and I garden every morning and the first thing she does is look to see if there are ripe strawberries on our twelve (yes, twelve) strawberry plants. She gets beyond excited if she sees one. She starts squealing "Num num" (her way of saying she wants something yummy) until I pick it for her. Needless to say my husband and I have not gotten even one strawberry yet...the girl loves them!
This year we have:
- 45 onions
- 12 strawberry plants
- 12 snap pea vines (that will be dying off shortly)
- 2 cucumber plants
- 4 tomato
- 1 zucchini
- 1 squash
- 6 jalapeno
- 1 habanero
- 2 different varieties of basil
- Lemon Balm
I am excited to see how well we do this year since our crop last year was just okay. I think giving birth in the middle of summer, never weeding after baby came, and then forgetting to water for waaaay too long didn't help our crop last year. I am so excited to feed my family organic home grown food this year!
