Seedlings




We have a massive garden at our house which I love. The kids are always very involved with the planting and weeding, but I thought it would be fun to try something new this year. I am going to let them start all of the vegetables indoors, everything but the corn at least. There's just too much of that. We usually start from seed in the ground, but I hear they do better if you start them inside a little early, plus it's a fun project. We always do corn, peas, tomatoes, zucchini, squash, and cucumbers. I will also be attempting pumpkins this time in hopes that we can at least grow a pumpkin per kid. I want some suggestions on some of the things you love to grow and how you enjoy it!

We have yet to plant a garden. We are more into ornamental things. I would like to try to plant some tomatoes this year.

That is such a great idea-I might try it. We love growing pumpkins. Last year we did the smaller gourd ones and had like 50 from two plants. There fun to decorate your house with in the fall.

Let's do it for sure! I will go to Target tomorrow for some more seeds. If Father has too much in the green house we could put them in my window sills.
