Building a Garden

A Day in the Life, Farm Book, How

image

A couple weekends ago, we joined a team of volunteers at the Muse to put in the boxes for our vegetable garden and clear out an area that had been fenced off and grown over. I knew there weren’t a lot of kids coming but I think it’s healthy for the Huckleberries to feel a little ownership and responsibility. More importantly, gardening is our favorite!

Daddy brought the truck to help bring in fresh dirt. Rory brought the wheelbarrow.

image

Edie brought get shovel and she knows how to use it.

image

We had to rent a trailer to move a ton of dirt to school and then wheel it up to the garden site on the other side of the yard.

image

But there’s nothing wrong with wheel barrows.

image

It took a long time to get the garden boxes put together and moved up to the right place.

Now we have a beautiful garden spot and a play forest as well. As soon as the little kids get bored of digging in the dirt, it will be safe to plant seeds!

Da’s Shop

A Day in the Life

I am in Tacoma today so we visited Da at work. My Da is a carpenter and he works at a window company. We got there and put our stuff in the truck, and I said Hi Da! He put me on his shoulders and we went into the shop. I met his work friends and saw the windows, and we went upstairs and saw the pretty greenhouses they build there too. When we had to go I was a little sad, but happy to ride in the truck with Mama. We sang the Zoo song.

My tooth is trying to grow. I already have seven… Isn’t that enough?
