The gardens are planted.

**Just a quick note: all of the bags of scraps are all spoken for. I will be getting in contact with the first 5 people that I either recieved an email or a comment from shortly. I am still working on the shipping prices. Thanks to all of you who were interested and no worries I will destash again!**

It took one full day to plant the gardens this year. Now that the kiddos are getting bigger it is getting so much easier…and funner.They love working out in the gardens just as much as we do!Every single seed in their packets got planted. I can only imagine what some of those mounds and rows are going to look like. But that is a good thing, because with all of the trenches and holes they are digging  in the gardens we are going to need some extra plants to grow. You know…just in case. The truth is they are pretty careful around the plants, but every once in awhile a little girl gets too excited over some onions that are growing as she thinks they are ready to be picked…and ends up picking a quarter of the row before this momma (who is busy mowing the lawn) realizes it.   Luckily onions are an easy fix.  And I will trade onions for dirty toes any day!Of course with the start of gardening season also comes the start of bug season, and caterpillar season, and moth season… and whatever other bug they can find season. This little one has a love for “papillars” like I have never seen before.  While her big sister rather enjoy them this way…me too.

    I cant believe your little ones love bugs! Mine are in the stage where they freak out over them! Well at least Maddy does – Chloe has outgrown it and will just step on something that bothers her (or pick it up to show everyone – one or the other, depends on whether or not she deems it a threatening bug or not). Ay yi yi
