Our Vegetable Garden

We decided it would be a lot of fun to start a vegetable garden this year and so far we have not been disappointed.  We don't have anything ready to eat yet, but the kids have loved every part of it.  We built a raised garden so they were able to help daddy put that together. They loved digging in the dirt and planting the seeds.  Watering has become a daily chore they are excited about doing. 

The excitement in their eyes when they see their seeds turning into plants is priceless.  They will come running through the door screaming, "Mommy, mommy, come look!!"  I can't wait to see what happens when vegetables actually come in.  Whenever it rains, we talk about how our garden is going to grow bigger because of all the water it is getting.  Our kids, like most, love being outside and exploring new things.  What a fun way for them to learn more about nature and where some of our foods come from than our own vegetable garden.  The best part about it is we will get fresh organic fruits and vegetables!
