Spring has sprung!

Hope all you momma's out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. I did. I enjoyed great food at Claim Jumpers and relaxing the day away with my family.

Now that it's finally getting warm here in the Chicagoland it's time to plant a garden. I'm doing a simple container garden this year.  Green peppers, romaine lettuce, short and sweet carrots and cucumbers. Yum! I think I may do one or two tomato plants too. I'm not a huge tomato fan but, I want to try my hand at making some fresh salsa this year.

Sophia was a great helper. She sprinkled the seeds in a nice row and helped me cover them up with soil. I love passing on the green thumb to her.  She is so proud. Can't wait to see her reaction when the seeds sprout!

Here is our mixed greens that we started by seed 2 months ago. The kids already enjoy picking and eating the lettuce.

Planting was a fun way to breakup the Monday blues.

Very good idea! You daughter looks so cute where she is waiting for the veggies to grow. In my garden you can find old spoons with names of the different veggies written on them in black.
