Our corner of the garden…

This year a family in Aaron’s parent’s neighborhood offered to let them use their gardening plot because they didn’t have the time to tend to it. Being the avid gardeners that Aaron’s family is, they jumped on the idea of having a family garden.

They spend countless hours planning everything out and assigning each of us a few rows to maintain. We have it the easiest sine we live just down the street, but at the same time, we have the youngest child!

We finally made time this weekend to head over and weed our rows.. YIKES.. it was scary..

This is most of the garden. There is EVERYTHING you can imagine planted here. You name it.. it’s growing…
These are our rows. I think there is Onions, (a few different kind maybe) Green Cabbage, Purple Cabbage, Cauliflower, and Broccoli. I think. There maybe be more growing on our rows, I’m just not sure. Aaron ever had to walk me through how to weed, I’ve never weeded anything. I’m glad I had the cabbage and onions, it was pretty easy to tell what was a weed.
This is as far as we got with our weeding in 3 hours with a 6 month old tired and hungry baby… But I think we did pretty darn good.
Speaking of the baby.. This is how he spent his 1/2 birthday. Out in the garden in the rain!
Thankfully we had a towel in the car so we could make him a little tent. He enjoyed it for the most part.
I don’t know why.. but I think that bean plants are so pretty.
I can’t wait till these are ready to harvest and I can cook them up for Miles. We snacked a little on them when we needed a break (shhhh…) and even let Miles suck on one of them. He was so mad when we took it away. I hope that means he’ll like to eat his vegetables!

I can’t wait to start making and freezing baby food…

I love our garden. Even though we haven’t contributed too much to it. It gives me a huge sense of accomplishment. I love knowing that so much will come out of this garden this year that we will all have plenty of food and be able to share with others too. I’m especially looking forward to the reduction in the grocery bill that will come. We could probably live off of everything in his garden alone! But we wont….


  1. Wow – that is one heck of a garden! I'm jealous! (especially since you only have to take care of part of it, but you get to reap the rewards of the whole thing – awesome!)
