Here's what we did this weekend! Planted our garden! It's still a little early for most plants, but we were able to get started with our lettuces. I'm not sure if onions are a cold-weather crop, but I planted some of those, too.
Juliet had fun rolling around in the dirt and burying the plants. (I had to dig them up while she wasn't looking!) But the best part of all was the watering. She soaked those little plants REAL GOOD.
I dug out some of our favorite gardening books tonight and they were big hits.
Growing Vegetable Soup by Lois Ehlert
Juliet actually made me read this one twice to her! She loves it! It's such a simple story, but it really resonates with Juliet. We don't grow enough vegetables to make a soup, but we do end up making a nice salad with our garden every year!
Two Little Gardeners by Margaret Wise Brown is another good Spring read. There is even a song at the end (complete with sheet music)! I keep meaning to bring it to my mom's house so I can peck out the tune on the piano. For now, I just make the tune up!
Here's a link to more of our reviews of garden books (if you are looking for more!)
Do you have any favorite garden books to share?
