A Little Boy's Vegetable Garden
Ben's First Garden
This lens is going to be about my son's garden. It will be updated on a regular basis, because every time something happens in the garden, I'll show everyone.
Having my son have his own garden was my husband's idea. He thought it would give him something to do, and something for him to be proud of when it's done. My husband talked him into a vegetable garden. It wouldn't have been my choice, but he is a boy after all.
Yes, we are still doing the garden. Three years in a row now. This year, he has decided that he wants corn, green beans, strawberries, watermelon and blackberries. The blackberries and watermelon, we will have to plant outside of the garden, because it's just not big enough. You can watch what happens right along with us..

Make sure you stay tuned to find out what happens. Will this garden be a success, a failure, or somewhere in between? You'll know as soon as we do.
It's now October 25th, and we are done with the garden for the year. The strawberries yielded a few berries for us, but the tomato plant and squash died. We tried to keep it watered and such, but we just couldn't make a go of it this year. Check us out in the spring, and we'll see what happens next year.
Remember, this lens is a perpetual work in progress, but let me know what you think anyways. I love visitors.
