Let Love Grow


Over the last few months, my darling daughter and I have been working hard at our little piece of Leesburg land.  A combination of in ground, Earth Box and potted planting makes up our tiny little *garden*. From planting tiny seedlings to creating the painted signs that show where and what we planted, Kayden seems to have enjoyed  tolerated our hours of diligence together.  In early March, we planted carrots, lettuce, a few types of tomatos and peppers, cucumbers, onions and strawberries.  A week later, we had a terrible hail storm that tore apart our Hostas and threatened the lives of our tiny seedlings.  Thankfully they *all* made it through and are blossoming into a tasty array of veggies for our summer plates.  Here are a few shots from a month ago (when they were about 65 days old):

My garden hand:

The tomatos in their Earth Box (behind the planters)

red, yellow, green bell peppers and some hot and sweet peppers too!

Lettuce in the back row, cucumbers in the front!  We actually have eaten all this lettuce already (field greens) and the cucumbers plants have spread through this whole box now!



There's your little tour of our tiny little garden!  Now we need to pray for a little rain to keep it going:)
