Sadie and Her Garden

Our artichoke plant we bought last summer as a wee little baby at our local Farmers Market is now full grown with four gorgeous chokes in full bloom. Every day, Sadie goes outside to give TJ and I the full report on their condition.

With this new-found love affair of growing plants, coupled with a glorious time frame of loving to eat, or at least try new veggies, I have decided to capitalize on the opportunity and teach Sadie how to grow what we eat. Since I love nothing more than fresh fruits and veggies, I want Sadie to grow up knowing about the hard work, the dedication, and the blessing real food is to our bodies. There is no better way to have an appreciation for such things than to do it yourself.

Over the weekend we began the process of sprouting some of our own sweet potatoes, who Sadie affectionately named Fish Potato and Pink Potato. Love that girl.

We also planted some giant sunflowers to make us happy. Especially Mommy.

Also on the list for this year is:

  • Onion
  • Carrots (Sadie’s current favorite)
  • Garlic
  • Watermelon
  • Strawberries
  • Celebrity Tomatoes
  • Sweet Peas
  • Celery
  • Oak Leaf Lettuce
  • Red Leaf Lettuce

Happy Spring!
