This is the account of my efforts to bring my children closer to nature, and maybe even get their hands dirty
in the process. My daughter and I are starting our very first vegetable garden, and it is promising to be quite the adventure! Come along on our journey to a more natural and sustainable life.
My name is Chrissy, and this beautiful princess with me is my daughter Tes. Tessie, as we also call her, turned four this February, and also gained a love for gardening. Together, we are starting a vegetable garden from the ground up, literally. I am letting, and encouraging, her to be as involved as possible. She helped pick all our seeds, planted and helped me label them, and has been along with me for almost every step of preparing the garden itself. The excitement over this project is clearly visible in her face every time she checks on our seedlings, scoops up a shovel full of dirt, or pulls a weed. I know that the gift I am giving her in this garden is greater than anything I will ever find in a store.
