All that to say, that's not what I am going for... I just wanted a few things that EK and I could take care of and pick through the summer for dinner now and then.
Scott took 4 planks, nailed them together and made the boundaries. He then filled it with cow manure soil and planted 2 tomato plants, 2 squash plants, 2 pepper plants, and a row of okra.
EK has loved watering them and watches closely to see if she can tell they are growing. Her favorite thing in all the world to eat is a tomato. She asks me all the time to make her a tomato sandwich... won't it be great when we can go down and pick one!
