My Little Helper

This weekend I worked on planting the rest of my Flowers and planted my garden. Every year I am so excited to buy flowers and plant them. Well after all the planting I always tell myself that I will not do this next year. Do I ever listen? I just love the flowers, but keeping up with the watering gets old after a while.

My hubby put the finishing touches on the square foot garden and he even let me use his drill! I felt so honored! I have never used a drill before so this was a new experience for me. So I drilled holes and then screwed screws into the wood. I am so proud of myself!

I was then able to get my square foot garden planted on Saturday. I planted some seeds and some plants. Now its time to see how it is going to work out. The younger children were so excited to help plant the seeds. I know they will be thrilled to see them start to grow. I know I will! Hopefully we will get some wonderful veggies to eat this Summer.

I had a bit of help from some of the children. Mostly from the nine years and younger crowd! If you have experience from this type of help, then you know that some of them are a bit more helpful than others! :) I am pretty sure that it can get done in half the time without so much "help"!

So What will a three year old do with one of these?

He is so much fun and keeps us laughing!

Also this sweet three year old stepped on three flowers before everything was planted. He was so Sorry! He was pretty broken hearted really, but I let him know that I forgave him. I also keep reminding him that it is a really good thing that he is so cute!
