Gardening Time

We try every week to stay within a budget when we go grocery shopping but rarely do.  Eating all organic can get expensive but to us it is totally worth it.  One way to save money on our organic fruits and vegetables is to grow them ourselves.  Last year we expanded our garden to 9ft x 13ft and we were able to get an adequate amount of produce.  Over the weekend my wonderful hubby expanded our garden to 9ft x 33ft!  We plan on growing all organic corn, tomatoes, bell peppers, potatoes, broccoli, cucumbers, asparagus, kale, spinach, and strawberries.  We also have a pear tree and a cherry tree.  Today we did a little gardening project with Ella and should have pumpkins in the fall! 

You can see the old garden gated and how far out Brian extended our new garden.

We found this awesome pumpkin gardening kit at Lowe's.
 She is ready to plant her pumpkin seeds!
 Of course Mason wanted to help.  Haiden is away for the weekend but he isn't much of a gardener.
 Adding organic soil.
 Helping Daddy put the pumpkin seeds in the soil.

 Watering the seeds.
 Our pumpkin plants will live here until May when we can transplant them outdoors.

Can't wait to show you our garden once we have all of produce planted and growing!
