A Time to Plant

Spring is here, and my garden is growing!
The broccoli, onions, and tomatoes are flourishing inside,

and the peas are biding their time outside, while I make new beds around them.

The Caterpillar's class took a field trip to the local creekside trail, where they planted trees.

D2 exercised his power of cuteness, and since the trees and shovels were his size, anyway, he got to plant a tree, too.

It looks like Charlie Brown's Christmas tree, but someday this "Plain Girl" may be a queen of the forest.  Yes, he named it himself, mystifying the nice lady who helped dig the hole.

We also planted fish.  These little salmon hatched in the Caterpillar's classroom, and now they are ready to go wild.  "Planting" them in the creek is the term the experts use.

D2 had cuted this gentleman before he even knew we were part of the field trip.

There were plenty of fish, and we all took a turn.
I think D2 took three.

How does your garden grow?


  1. I don't get to plant a garden this year, since I sure hope I won't still be here by the time the plants would be grown. But I want to plant my seeds!
