We love the spring. Not only is it baseball season but it is time to grow our garden. A few weeks ago in Sacrament meeting at church I was reminded of the timely counsel of President Kimball he repeatedly emphasised to grow our own gardens. "Get together with others and seek permission to use a vacant lot for a garden, or rent a plot of ground and grow your gardens."
So we set out to grow our garden again. Each family member will be given a row to till, plant and sow.
After working the soil we took a trip to Home Depot to pick out our plants. Each person will be incharge of growing two types of plants here is what we chose.
Faith- Sunflowers and Cucumbers
Malachi- Jalapeno Peppers and Artichokes
Hope- Carrots and Cucumbers
Ephraim- Sunflowers and Carrots
Gideon- Carrots and Stripey Tomatoes
Samuel- Onions and Chives
Mom- Cherry Tomatoes
Dad- Big Beef Tomatoes
Some of these veggies we have never grown before. I guess we'll see if they work.
Along with the garden we are also growing 4 kinds of grapes, Nectarines, Apricots, Plums, Apples, and Lemons.
We are excited about our garden and hope the birds stay away!!
