A Family Experience

February 22, 2012

With this unseasonably warmer winter, we have turned our thoughts towards spring and our garden.  From what we are going to plant, to when and how to keep "bambi" out so we can enjoy the fruits of our harvest.
I have been dreaming of starting my garden from seeds this year, not pre-purchased plants.  The varieties are much better.
I have never been much of a green thumb, but I am taking up this new adventure of gardening with gusto and a little help from my dear family.
Last night my family set around the dinner table talking and planning our new garden space.  Each person wanting something different to grow in our garden.

The best part about this garden,we are making it a family experience. 

Any garden tips that you would love to share, would greatly be appreciated!

Wishing you a beautiful day, sweet friends.

What beautiful inspiration, Sheila! I've been such a bad gardener for the last couple of years, and have been feeling so guilty about it--what a great idea to have a garden scrapbook...think that just might get me going in the right direction! Love the idea of planning it with the whole family, too...perfect!

Thanks, as always, for most wonderful, inspiring ideas, dear friend...

No green thumb here...just love that your garden is a family activity! I'd love to grow a garden, too, but there's one big obstacle: his name is Boomer, not Bambi;)
