They're Alive!

We can't believe that we planted some seeds in a wooden box with a mixture of soil, and actually have something starting to grow.  We have growth in the garden!  We have small buds of broccoli, cucumber, and bibb lettuce!  The boys are thrilled.  So you are seeing it here first folks, the debut of the garden sprouts.

Yes, look CLOSELY and you'll see them.

The challenge now will be to keep our garden healthy, organically free of pests, and keeping it weed free.  I know it will be tough, but the end result will be amazing and fulfilling.  We plan on canning this year too.   So, we have lots of excitement coming our way.  The look on the boys faces was priceless.  The first thing Nolan asked about this morning was the garden.  "Is our garden growing today?"  So we went outside and noticed the growth,  they began  jumping up and down with their fists in the air, cheering!  "Yay, we have food!  Yay, we have food!" (Who knows what our neighbors thought....."Bless their hearts they finally are eating.") ------------->  ENTER my hysterical laughter. 

Stay tuned.......more to come.
