I can barely keep flowers alive, let alone a full blown plant.
That is why Jordan is the gardener in the family at the moment.
This year we tried container gardening.
We had a ton of big pots that held flowers last year.
This year they housed carrots and arugula. (and spinach but that didn't work)
This is at the start of the summer.
We took some out early because we were curious if anything was growing...
Some progress clearly. But we needed to let these babies stay longer.
A few weeks back we had the big carrot reveal...
Where we pulled a few...
They were still not FULLY ready.
(There you slightly met our neighbor boy in the pics)
A few weeks later we picked the rest. They were massive....
They were amazing....seriously, tasted like heaven!
The arugula also is rocking it out. We use it weekly in Jordan's salad.
We planted more carrots and also planted watermelon just to play around with it.
The boys will flip their lid if melons actually grow. Here is what it looks like in 3 days from seed.
Notice the two seeds on the tips. The plant literally grew out of them. Coolest thing, ever!
If you have the chance with the rest of summer or even next year I really suggest trying out a garden.
We did everything from seed but you can plant little half grown stuff and watch it grow!
Your kids will love it! Vincent thinks he is the real deal gardening.
Luke is still a wild card, he is a little rough with the whole thing!:)
Sidenote: I also have mint and cilantro growing in a flowerbed. I LOVE fresh cilantro, it's so nice to have it right outside the door!
What is your favorite fruit/veggie to grow?!
