The weather is finally starting to moderate and we're finishing up planting the garden. Yesterday I planted green beans, tomatoes, and started planting onions before taking a break. Later, Older Daughter and I went out and finished planting the onions, as well as pumpkins, cantaloupe, and two types of watermelon.
But this left a good-sized space in the garden still unplanted. "I was thinking on planting herbs there," I told Older Daughter "What do you think?"
"Yes!!" she said with great enthusiasm. So we went into the greenhouse and planted those minuscule herb seeds in a starter flat.
As we planted the herbs and talked about how we were going to save the vast majority of what grows for future seed (since all the garden plants are nonhybrid), Older Daughter paid me a very nice compliment. She said, "I've said it before, but I'm so glad to be born into this family."
My kids read this blog so both girls will see this posting at some point. Just wanted to let them know we're awfully glad they were born into this family too.
