How Does Our Garden Grow?

...with strawberries, mint, sweet basil, watermelon, sweet peppers, red peppers, sweat peas, onions and cilantro.  

Dana took Clara to my mom's on Sunday to help my mom cut some branches off of her tree.  Aiyana stayed at the house with me and she helped me plant some new veggies, fruit and herbs in our garden.  She did a really good job breaking up the tough Arizona dirt.  Believe it or not, there is some good soil underneath all of that gray stuff. Dana poured about 10 inches of healthy soil into our gardening box last year.


Her favorite tasks were breaking up the dirt, sticking the plastic description tags in the ground next to their respective plants and, of course, using the hose to water them afterwards.


 

Tada... Looks a tad pathetic right now, but it will get better.  We have to decide what other fruits and veggies we want to plant.
