My helper and I got the garden planted before vacation. She had a great time this year helping get it cleared out and digging holes for the plants.
Some of the plants are probably a bit too close together, but I let her help out quite a bit and just went with it. Maybe next year we’ll put more effort into deciding exactly where the plants should go.
We are hopeful for the harvest, looking forward to having lots of tomatoes, squash, and peppers to share.
While I don’t really enjoy the work of gardening, I do enjoy the harvest and the family time we get working together on it (especially when that time happens early before the heat takes over).
