How does your garden grow?
It grows when someone else plants it!! lol My back went out, yet again and so I have been unable to do much of anything! It sucks, but what can ya do? This has been a problem since the triplets were born, I have muscle separation from that pregnancy. So I have no abdominal muscles, which in turn causes my back to be weak. I need to get it fixed, but there's no time or money for it yet. Anyways, my back's been out since Friday and it sucks. We wanted to get the garden going, so Jon took charge. I think he would much prefer that I just be completely knocked out than so helpless and in the way! lol But I have to be a part of the planning and the supply purchasing, I just have to be!! So we go to Menard's and get all the stuff we need, some tomato plants and peppers. I already have seeds for the lettuce and onions. He bought the wood to build the raised bed the other day. The kids are excited about their garden! It's cute and small. It'll be fun. Wish I could have done something to help besides watch.. We also picked up a teeter totter. It spins around in circles and goes up and down. It's like a rollercoaster. It's a lot of fun until someone gets hurt. Which happened quite a few times in the first hours after having it in the yard. It might go back to the store and a safer one to replace it! Dylan is a little daredevil and loves it. He also doesn't like to stop when someone wants off. People that want off also don't realize they have to wait for it to stop before getting off or letting go!! Ayden had the most serious injury, he hit his chin and I thought for sure he needed stitches. But we got a second opinion from a nurse friend and so he was bandaged up and good to go. Right now I'm watching them have a blast with it. So far no injuries or kids sent flying through the air. So we'll see. It's for 3-12 year olds. I sure can't see a 3-year-old using this thing, my 4 1/2 year olds can barely reach the handles from the seat!
