Planting Time!

I took all of my helpers for a field trip on Friday. We went to the local farm to pick up our flowers and vegetable plants for the garden. The ride to the farm was hysterical. They get so excited, deciding what they want for "their" plant.

Me - So what vegetable plants would you like to get this year?
#1 - I want a tomato!
#3 - I want some basil!
#5 - Pickle! (he is the cutest thing...when we convinced him there was no pickle plant he settled for a "tornado"...tomato)  

It was so much fun looking at all the different things - I think we counted 15 different types of tomatoes! I guess I get a little excited as well, knowing that in just a few months we will be steps away from fresh produce. Yum!

Taking a break on the cool swing while mom loads the car - I think they need a bigger swing.
We had some other things to do when we got home and we were waiting for the potting soil from Dad so this morning, after breakfast, we all headed out to plant some things. They all did well for a while then boredom set in for the smallest two. That would be why they missed the final shot.
Not that much to see now but wait a while! It is such a wonderful tradition around here. We help by picking and planting and God does the rest. How blessed we are.
Have a blessed Sunday. If you're near the South Hills, come join us for Family Rosary at 2 :0)
