52 Projects #4


So here we are with our potting project...which will hopefully be the beginnings of our vegetable patch. I bought a whole batch of these seeds pots at CVS when they clearanced them 2 summers ago...and remembered too late to plant them last year. I'm hoping to get lots of tomatoes...the others are mixed wildflowers. One of my daughters picked up lots of tiny bags of seeds at one of the Batmitzvahs she attended so we'll have to get more soil and plant them pronto.

When my first 4 children were small we lived here with my Mother-In-Law and she spent the whole summer in the garden, and the children would spend hours outside with her. I have yet to try my hand at anything of the horticultural side of life but that is changing in the near future. Our weekend projects this week include installing a new stove and hopefully starting on the backyard...clean up etc...I'm so excited to be doing a little on the house...for a change.


And if you've noticed my absence lately it's because I have so much trouble connecting to the internet these days...I'm lucky to read a blog here and there....but still trying.

I hope your green thumb is better than mine. Sounds like a fun activity to keep the kids busy. Have a wonderful weekend.

I have the feeling your going to be a great gardener!!! I know the kids will enjoy it...kids and gardens go hand in hand!! If you can get a hold of any Stevia, give it a try...the leaves are so SWEET my kids just pick the leaves off and eat them...when they were little the would put a lemon balm leaf and a Stevia leaf together and call it a "lemon cookie"

I love the little green guy. I'm not doing much planting this year. We made a huge attempt last year and failed on an equally huge scale, so I'm far less inclined to try again. I think I'll leave it to the professionals this year.

Welcome back...we've missed you! I love the potting project. We too have been potting away over here since the weather is turning warmer. Breen is the green thumb though and I'm hoping some of his expertise rubs off on me. I can't wait to grow a vegetable garden one day!

Any kind of planting is just really nice. I have to say this is the first year that I am not as motivated... just too much to do everywhere else ,but I am still trying to get some tomatoes, herbs and peppers. Love your cute little green guy :) And it is really nice to get the children involved...

Those pictures are priceless! I too like the little green guy -- he's almost as cute as your daughter. Good luck with the project.
