The weather here in California has started to warm up and we’ve been outside more lately. The boys really enjoyed our garden last year, so I wanted to let them have a bigger part in it this year. We spent some time this weekend planting a Spring garden. Our strawberries carried over from the previous couple of years, and thanks to Monrovia we’ve added a few other plants to our mix this season. We added Tomato, Cucumber, Zucchini, Sugar Peas, and what I’m most excited about, Blueberries! I haven’t had much luck with them in the past, so I’m hoping this blueberry plant fares better. Aiden helped me with planting, and Søren spent some time doing his favorite activity, watering. The plant markers only took about 5 minutes to make using paint stir sticks and chalkboard paint. I stacked them together and trimmed to a point with a miter saw before painting with a roller brush. I didn’t use a chalk pen, but you can if you want. I can’t wait until we can enjoy some of the food from our garden, our strawberry plants are already full of fruit.
