Our garden this year. . .
full of yummy herbs: mint, basil, and oregano. . .
too many returning strawberry plants (relocated to the side of the garden. . .much to Max's delight. . .note to self: get a new fence to keep out the strawberry-happy dog. . .)
roma tomatoes. . .cucumbers. . .peppers. . .and lots of different kinds of lettuce (new to try this year). . .
Dada and Jack planting his little boy garden: tomatoes. He absolutely adores tomatoes. . . and eats them right off the plant all summer long (much like my Pap. . .story: my Great Grandma Smith would put my Pap in his high chair as a small boy. . .and give him a tomato. . .which he would happily munch away at. . .like an apple. . .as she worked away in the kitchen. . .love family stories). . .
Jack has had his own little garden every summer since he was two. . . The first year he had a marigold to care for. . . We would water it daily with his little green watering can. . . The next summer we upgraded to a tomato plant. Which he loved. . . And have planted one every year since.
This year Lukey got his own tomato plant as well. . . Not sure if he will be a fan of tomatoes or not. . . But thought he would love having his own plant to water as well.
He stood by watching Dada plant it. . . And when we asked him to pat the dirt down when he got it in, Luke happily pat patted the leaves. Kinda like petting a dog?
Looking forward to lots of garden goodies this summer. . . Home grown goodies are the best. . .
