Garden update

Our garden is beginning to thrive.  Our little guy likes going in with his “scooper shovel” and helping to dig around in the dirt with us.  He helped plant the seeds and we’re pointing out the plants that are coming up.  So far, we’re seeing evidence of radishes, peas and carrots (and one lonely bean plant).  I think it’s really important for kids to know where their food comes from and it’s delicious to eat vegetables you grow yourself (plus, my wife wanted a garden – I’m pretty lazy when it comes to gardens and I like the idea, she took the initiative and bought the stuff).

The seasonal wisdom blog published a bigger article today of five reasons kids should garden.  I agree with them on all points and I suggest that you take a read here.
