seed to start to food


it's garden planting time! we skipped tending one last year while i was very pregnant and i couldn't wait to get back into the swing of things this time around. we've been spending our days gathering up seeds and starts and forever trying to get dirty hands clean. bee has the most eager little trouble fingers...ripping away at lettuce leaves and raking up dirt to mouth. max is a sweet teacher to her..."this is a pumpkin seed, bee"...and "aaahhh...don't eat that!".

gardening has always been a bit of a "cross your fingers/here's hoping" kind of hobby for us. but every year a little something catches and grows. max calls it magic when seeds sprout and vegetables are plucked and food is washed and ready for dinner. i think he's right on the money...

happy monday, friends!

  7. I LOVE the marker sticks! And there is nothing in the world that is nicer than homegrown food and flowers.

  16. So sweet. Last year we grew tomatoes on our back patio and I loved it, even thought we only had a few that were good to eat. We tried an heirloom variety which are a little harder to grow and late bloomers. We had lots but then the weather turned cold. I think we are going to try some sweet 100s this year. I look forward to having a yard and garden one day :) ♥Lindsay

    Recently, I've started to grow my own herbs and it's such a fun experience. Lovely pictures! -Ben-

  20. I'm 39 + weeks pregnant, and not being able to accomplish all of my gardening is driving me crazy. I can't wait to get back to it! (Although, I did get a few things planted!)

    Happy spring!
