this is how our garden grows

"There are blessings in being close to the soil, in raising your own food, even if it is only a garden in your yard and/or fruit tree or two. Man's material wealth basically springs from the land and other natural resources." -Ezra Taft Benson

Back in the fall, we had a lesson on self-reliance in church. I felt very inspired and prompted that we should make an effort to do a garden this year. It has been a lot of work. But I think that's the beauty of it. Work. I can't ever expect my children to learn to work hard if they don't learn from my example.

It took us a while to finally get these raised garden boxes built. Brandon gets all the credit for those. He did such a good job.

And then we finally got some veggies planted: tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, peppers, pumpkins and watermelon. We hope they all grow well this year! 

That is if we can keep this little girl from picking all the plants before they grow. She ain't afraid of mud, that's for sure!
