Last week Cecilia got it into her head that she really needed her own personal garden, and chose a spot right by the back door. She started clearing out the weeds and mulched probably a square foot before she gave up and moved on to another project. It was fun while it lasted, though!
Peter insisted on "helping" which just means digging everything up with whatever trowel he could find, so we distracted him with the hose.
And Elizabeth wanted to help, too, but really just ended up finding an interesting patch of clay and digging there for a while.
Mary Claire was obviously too tired to do any work, so she asked me to take a picture of her lying in the grass with "Purple Dibble" (a stuffed bunny we got at the dollar store a couple years ago).
Meanwhile, John Paul was inside making pickles out of some cucumbers a friend had just given to us! None of our plants are producing yet, but hopefully soon? They took FOREVER to germinate, and are only just now sending out female flowers for pollination.
