Sweet Peas Sweet Girl

10 Jun

My first memory of gardening is planting sweet peas and baby carrots with my mom.  I remember planting the skittle sized seeds into the ground and then watering them.  I remember watching as tiny little green sprouts poked themselves through the earth and then miraculously began climbing up a little fence I made for them.  I remember eating them right off the plant and thinking that nothing could taste better.

I have just had a very nostalgic moment with Aleah, as we have done the same thing together as my mom and I did years ago.

Not sure how Aleah did it but her sweet peas are about an inch taller than everything else in our garden.  Might be because she waters them about twice a day or it might be because she is so sweet herself =)

What a hard little worker.

I hope this instills a love in her for gardening as it did for me when I was a little girl.
