Backyard Box Gardens

We started here.  They were supposed to be themed gardens.  Olivia chose a butterfly garden and Joe chose a pizza garden.  Only problem was our i.d. sheet for what we planted in the egg carton got wet or lost or something and we had to guess what we were planting where the boxes.  And, the squash and pumpkin seeds we saved from last year were not labeled, so it is all a big mystery what will come up.  Kind of exciting really.

 We knew we would need to transplant the pumpkins at some point, so the kids cleaned out our strip of dirt.  They were standing in that trench up their thighs just before we filled it in.  Forgot to get a picture of that.

We'll keep you posted on the harvest or any butterfly sightings.
