Growing and Growing!
Wow. I'm so encouraged by the way our garden is growing. Every single seed we planted has sprouted! We have tomatoes, cantaloupe, green beans, strawberries, green onion, cucumbers, green pepper, squash and zucchini.
Today, Luke and I found blossoms on our squash and zucchini plants. Each blossom will grow in to a vegetable. I can't wait to taste the fruits of our labor. It's so exciting to care for and nurture something from a tiny seed and then watch it bloom in to maturity.
I even gave Luke a few of my leftover seed and he planted them in a little spot in the yard. He's been watering them and watching them everyday, but I never actually thought they would sprout. To my surprise though, they have! He's so excited to see the little green bean plants that have started to grow in "his garden!"
This has been a great project for Luke and I to work on together. We've both has lots of fun tending to our garden. And, we're both looking forward to tasting what we've grown!
