I have a small garden where I play “Farmer.” It’s only 4’x8′ and I don’t expect to feed my family from it. But if we can get some veggies every year while the children experience the cycle of sowing, weeding, watering and harvesting, I am happy.
This year, we already learned some lessons from it. Now, I’m back with an update.
It has been raining almost every day for the past three weeks. I have not had to water my garden. Yeah!
I did have to clean up after our cat, who had been using our garden patch as a litter box. Yuck!
My husband came up with a solution: plastic fencing that can be wrapped around the four poles of the garden bed. I knew those poles would come in handy one day…
So here’s my veggie garden in full swing, with the new fencing around it.
Our one and only blackberry bush
Our one and only grape vine
One of our blueberry bushes
A baby cucumber
These pictures are quite the metaphor for children. Growing, developing, not yet fully matured, but perfect in every way. And cute.
