Gracie is a great helper, she is always near by digging out weeds... her sister on the other hand (see in the background) is usually busy finding something to climb or figuring out a way to get wet.
Here is the garden after tons of hard work. I let Gracie chose the plants this year, she picked corn, squash, tomatoes, basil, watermelon (didn't survive).
Once again, my little helper raking weeds and putting them in the trash bin... Ruby was climbing the wall behind me. Seriously.
Our strawberries survived the weed infested garden beds. They are packed full of pretty little white flowers just waiting to turn into strawberries.
There she is! As soon as I turned the hose on to water she came running. This part she likes to help with. And yes, 5 minutes (or less) after this photo was taken she was soaking wet!
My little garden in all its glory. I know it's not much, but it keeps two little girls occupied and makes them feel like mini-farmers.
Does anyone know if my garden will still grow successfully since I waited till July to plant? Sure hope so!
