Anyone that follows up on facebook probably saw this picture of Madeleine gardening. We (Madeleine and me, Matt wants nothing to do with the garden) have been working on the garden.
On the day that Madeleine looked like that, the garden looked like this.
And on top of that, it was flooded so she sat in the water and splashed in the muddy water.
Now...there is just mud! w00t!!!
This is what it looked like tonight when I left. There is still a lot for me to do, but we have plants growing. Matt is concerned that I'm going to kill most of the plants, but if we get one piece of produce per plant, then we'll break even. That's not hard to beat, right?
I'm really excited. Our kitchen looks right out to the garden, (so it's like 5 feet from our house) and Madeleine can practice her pouring skills. We have strawberry plants that were left over from last year that are blooming already, so we'll have fresh strawberries in the next few weeks!
