Now that the weather has heated up our backyard is like a greenhouse. I have been watering like crazy and the plants are thriving this year. Last year most of our veggies were demolished by fungi and insects but we seem to be doing OK this year.
Scarlett is a wonderful helper in the garden and I take her with me whenever I go pick out new seeds to plant. She planted these zinnias and sunflowers from seed and was ecstatic to go out one morning and find that the sunflowers had opened. It is giving her such a sense of pride knowing she took part in it.
