Months ago(when Kent departed) I had decide that we would not have one this year.
However when I reported this to the children they were devastated.
"Oh mommy PLEASE, PLEASE, can we have one!"
I caved, Informing them of the work at hand. They were all so excited to help.
That is until the job was about half done.
"Mommy, I'm tired!" "Mommy I'm hot!"
Did mommy hear their cry.
We kept on working until the job was finished.
Everyone helped plant tomatoes, corn, squash, pumpkins, lettuce and carrots.
It has been a while now and so we have fun little sprouting things popping up everywhere.
