Spring Break Day 3-5
One of the best things we have done as a family is build our own vegetable garden. Chad and Nikko built the wooden frame (had to because we live on a huge limestone rock) and all of us picked out some favorite veggies to plant. After 6 loads of dirt, and everyone shoveling, we finally got it in our veggie box. Row by row we planted jalapenos, egg plant, bell peppers (all colors), tomatos, watermelons, melons, grapes, blueberries, radishes, onion, garlic, cilantro, cucumbers, and strawberries. I probably over packed things because they are already starting to grow very fast. I hope we get a delish harvest! Yummo! Chad has promised to make the first batch of fresh salsa, Lissy wants chocolate covered strawberries, and Nikko wants fresh tomatoes. I actually wanna try eggplant because I have never had it, but it sure is a pretty color.
