Back in the Garden!

Here we are! I will be gardening with a one year-old this year. If you are one of the three people that followed this blog in the past, I should warn you that this is probably going to be a "mommy blog" with an emphasis on gardening. It's inevitable. And my methods for getting some produce on the table... well, I'm not sure that even I will be able to recommend them to anyone.

I got 45 minutes to tear $hit up in the garden last night. Weeds had taken over and are getting an early start with our weird spring. I was able to place my seed order, finally, this morning. Thank you, Fedco for updating your website so that it SAVES THE ORDER beyond 30 minutes. It took me about 10,000 minutes to complete mine.

Two of my biggest issues this year are soil health and getting some compost into the ground and making the gardening area a safe and pleasant place for a toddler to dig (and eat dirt).

Here we go!

I love it! My gardening this year will be minimal, I think, but I will be soaking up everything I learn from your experience.

I was just at Barnes and Noble and was sorely tempted to buy an adorable child's gardening set, with plastic tools and watering can. I might still go back and get it! I'm excited about playing in dirt with my own yearling child.

I'm on the lookout for baby gardening tools, too! We will pick some up if we find them. I think our girls are going to love the dirt all summer! S already knows how to hose herself down after getting muddy. This weather has been kind of fun. Who knows what we will actually get done in the garden, but I'm excited to play out there with a kiddo.
