Time to Start Our Garden

Its that time of year again...

We all pick packs of seeds for our favorite vegetables, round up all the supplies & play with some dirt.  All with the slight disbelief (combined with eternal optimism) that our little plants will grow.  This is my 5th attempt at a vegetable garden and this year: I am feeling ambitious.  Not all plants in our garden will start from seed--we will buy some starters in a few weeks for sure.  But there is something magical about kids watching sprouts unfurl and grow tall.  And in the end, its a sure way to get them to eat their veggies! : )


I am incredibly proud of how seriously Magdalena takes the whole process.  She is really into it and it makes me so happy to do this with her.  Luca likes it too, but he'd much rather throw the dirt in the air and try catch it with his mouth...
