However, we decided as we’d managed to grow a beautiful and clever girl and a gorgeous caring boy we should be a little more confident with a few bulbs and seeds! Our little boy planted some garlic just before Christmas and there are shoots… so we went for it and have just planted onions, potatoes, asparagus and rhubarb… and an apple tree. The best bit is that we’ve now transformed Sunday afternoon into ‘Gardening Club’. After church each week we all get into muddy boots and get digging and watering and record everything in our garden journal. If we grow very little there’s a million happy points just in the fun we’ve been having in just having a go!

Just finished planting my little seeds and I’ll be praying over the next two weeks they’ll germinate! :)

Funny kids…
As for a garden, we started simple last year to wet our feet a little and did tomatoes, cucumbers, greens of various sorts and carrots. Oh and we managed one zucchini and a couple of green pumpkins before the frost hit (I got those started a little late). This year we are going to build/make a couple more plots and expand with some of the things that can get started now like peas, broccoli, kale, onions and who knows what else. It’s my thing to do this Saturday.

And y’all will have so much fun planting. Happy Spring! (Isn’t that what planting always makes you feel like? Spring!)

I would be really happy with just the herbs this year. I want my daughter to see where her food comes from (I can always explain that the other large vegetables and fruit grow from the ground like the herbs that I will hopefully not kill). We have just moved to France so if I get more ambitious I will have to navigate the local nursery with my limited French and my dictionary. Thanks for the post, it has motivated me to make this a priority!

You’ll be able to grow so many yummy things! Think of the peppers! (Excuse my heat jealousy – peppers are hard to grow in cool Seattle!)

I used the wrought-iron work on my window ledges for peas, too, and that was always super successful (obviously a fire escape would have been a lot better). I also kept berries one summer that was particularly hot (2007 maybe?). But everything always did really well – especially the tomatoes. Just spend some time thinking about how much sun/shade you have… NYC kitchens tend to be perfectly suited to mushrooms, for instance, since they’re usually pretty dark! Think about placement later. Seed now : )

It’s about 7×4 feet. This is going to be our year to finally DO something with it! Just checked out some gardening/kid’s gardening books from the library. I live in SoCal with lots of sun, heat, and arid weather — and ants. So we’ll see what happens. I would be happy with some tomatoes and basil for a caprese salad this summer!
