Our garden

I have been wanting to plant a garden for some time now.  Now that we homeschool I thought it was the perfect time to do it and use it as a 'get our hands dirty' lesson...those are the best kinds after all. 

We grew our sprouts inside while the weather was still a little chilly.
We planted watermelon, cucumber, green onions, peppers, garlic, radishes, beans, tomatoes and we also have some strawberries in a topsy turvy planter.

Then we built our garden frame and filled it with dirt and when the weather warmed up (or so we thought) we transplanted them outside.

I have more of a black thumb than a green one so our plants aren't looking very healthy.  We are hoping they turn around...
