Honestly, planting is not a favorite activity of the boys’. They prefer the picking, which I understand. (And I enjoy watching everything grow.) Who doesn’t like to pull a whopper cucumber from the vine or snack away on sun-warmed tomatoes?
The cucumbers are a very favorite of all three boys, so on the first day of planting, the cucumbers – 4 in each boys’ gardens – was the main accomplishment. All 12 plants were started by seed in our home, and I’m really, really hoping they make it.
