The kids love to pull carrots from the garden. The garden has gotten Andrew in trouble a few times, but I enjoy watching the plants grow so it has been worth it. When we planted peas, Elizabeth checked every day to see how much they had grown. I loved hearing her excitement each morning when they had grown an inch. Now it is fun to find new peas each day. They seem to pop up over night.
Soon it will be time for tomatoes. We have two that are getting big, and countless blossoms. Andrew loves tomatoes, so it will be interesting to see if he leaves them alone....I doubt it. One morning I found his radio flyer wagon resting on top of the tomato plants. I was afraid he had completely destroyed the plants, but they came through just fine.
