It's Good to be Green! (Garden Update!)

Move over Martha, apparently Mama (and Daddy) have a green thumb.

We may have been a little overzealous with the seeding, however, we did yield a few radish. The rest of our crop is due to be harvested throughout mid-June to mid-July. 

After close to 5 hours of pruning and weeding, we decided to use some hay to try and prevent the weeds from taking over. Since our first post, we've added a chicken wire fence to the perimeter of the garden to keep the pesky groundhog and rabbits out.

What has been the best part of the garden thus far has been the level of interest shown by Moira and Maeve. Almost daily, when we arrive home from school or other adventures out, they enjoying racing down to check on the garden. Maeve was the first to spy the purple blooms of pending eggplant and Mo has helped weed among the zucchini and squash.

While I am unsure how many consumable vegetables our garden will ultimately produce, I am excited that as of today is looks the part!
