I am really excited to plant a garden this year, both vegetable and flower.
I was driving in the car with Holly and I asked her what she wanted me to plant in our garden. (We have a lot of meaningful talks in the car:P). She didn't understand at first so, I told her mommy could grow tomatoes. Ohhhh! She wanted to know if I could grow banana's. No, they grow in Hawaii and humid places. So she wanted to know if I could grow oranges. Yeah. How about avocados? Uh, probably not. What about applesauce? I explained that comes from apples and they grow on trees. I told her we could do cucumbers and green beans. She asked what about salad. I said yeah, we can grow lettuce and she said NO, SALAD. Oh, okay we can grow salad. Then Holly asks what about animal crackers? I told her they come from wheat and I wasn't planning to plant those.
I think now both Holly and I are excited about the garden, though I think she would be happier with the things you could grow somewhere tropical. She can do that when she is grown up.
