Title: progress in motion!!
Post by: lisa on June 20, 2006, 13:57
Well.  having only had my plot for a few months and being new to the game I thought I'd fill you in with my progress so far.

The potatoes,planted by my lovely 11 year old son, are coming up, all over the place and not in the rows like we intended, but at least we ve got some coming thru!!!  we have to clear the weeds has we ve gone along in order to see whats what though!!

THe carrots, planted by the younger daughter have come thru too, pretty much the same as the spuds, all over the place!!  kidney beans are doing really well as are the strawberries, broccoli is deciding what it wants to do of its own accord, dying one minute thriving the next and the tomatoes are enjoying the bamboo cane that they are leaning on so much they ve become one!!!

But the main thing is we are having a ball whilst we are up there and doing stuff together. I am even beginning to get used to the frogs, spiders and creepy things i keep finding!!  x x

You know, in a way it doesn't matter if you don't get any crops as the real benefit is some quality time and a shared interest with the kids. That really is priceless.
