Garden babies!

Holy smokes, my garden is still alive.  I will try not to brag too much so I don’t spoil it but here are some pics of some of the good:

Baby cuke!
Baby watermelon!! Cutest thing in the whole world.
Baby squash!!
Toddler cuke?
Pepper! Sweet yellow heirloom.

Best part of today for me was time with my newly three-year-old wee.  His sister was napping and we slipped outside together.  I was transplanting some pepper plants from under some beans and marigolds to a sunnier locale.  He got out his gardening tools and declared he wanted to plant some seeds.  I showed him some gerbera daisies that were going to seed and he planted them all!  He knows all the steps and was so proud to do it all himself.  I think he has it too, that thing I got from my dad, that I-have-to-stick-my-hands-in-some-dirt thing.  I hope it lasts, us spending time together with the earth.  It’s the one thing my dad and I can always come back to, no matter the other stuff between us.  Thanks again, earth, for these ongoing gifts!

  1. Gotta teach ’em young. I’ll have a photo of my son picking and eating sugar snap peas from my garden when he was around two but it probably won’t get published for another 2 weeks.
