Spring Planting

The kids and I are enjoying our Spring Break! So far the weather has cooperated with warm sunny days - such a wonderful treat after what seemed like months of rain during winter. We decided yesterday with the great weather to do all of our spring planting.

We went to our local plant nursery store and bought soil, vegetable plants, annuals and some new containers. This little butterfly flew around us the whole time we were shopping.

It took us just a few hours to get all the containers prepared and then planted.

Devin was a huge help with the loading and transporting of everything to our backyard while the girls could not wait to get their hands in the dirt.

I am looking forward to July when many of our containers will be overflowing with fruit and veggies for picking. This year we chose Better Boy Tomatoes, Red Peppers, Chives and Strawberries to grow.

I love it when kiddos help in the garden. I think it really "plants seeds" in them for the future.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
