Gardening Galore!

Friday, May 21, 2010

This has been a very busy week!  We are done with school, but will continue to work on some math and do read alouds.  We are currently reading Shadow Spinner.  The boys are loving this one!  They have been begging me to read more and more so we are over halfway done with the book.  When we are done we will do a discuss on it.
I have been trememdously busy planting the garden.  So far I have planted...peas, carrots (orange and purple carrots), lettuce, flowers (multi-colored daisies and bachelor buttons), basil and cilantro.  Next week I will plant potatoes, beets, beans, tomatoes, zucchini, and pumpkins!  Whew, it makes me tired just thinking of all of it!  But I am so excited!  Pumpkins are new for us this year...they are hard to grow in Alaska.  So it will all be one big experiment to see what we get.

Today the boys have a church event...going to the river to fish and hike with our church group...so I gotta run!  Have a blessed weekend!

Sounds like an ambitious garden. I've never had purple carrots.

Your garden sounds like a labor of love. Good luck with the pumpkins!

We are finally done, too, but I'm still deciding what we will do over the summer.
