The kids both love to come out and "help". Sweetie usually ends up getting distracted and letting me do the work, while Little Dude usually "helps" a little too much with the harvesting.
But, alas, at least I can get them involved. As soon as we got outside and I told Sweetie we were going out to the garden to pick tomatoes, she said, "This is tomato-tastic!". I don't know where she got that from, but it sure is cute.
And today's interpretation of Week 2 Day 2 went a little like this:
We started out all in the garden picking the orange tomatoes. Or at least that was the plan!
I actually ended up with quite a few tomatoes this year considering our weather this summer.
And off she goes, "letting" me pick the rest.
And Little Dude helps pick the green ones.
She decided she needed a megaphone to give proper directions to us.
Then she found a dandelion seed head.
And blew her little heart out.
This is our sad brussel sprout plant. I have never grown them before, but I don't think we are going to actually get any.
And we have a pumpkin hiding.
And we may even get some more zucchini!
And I found a pumpkin that was even better at hiding. I must have passed by this one about 5 times before I saw it!
My little helper looking for more treasures.
This was our surprise sunflower. I think the birds planted this one.
My mom used to call these "indian berries" I think. They make a beautiful pink colour when you smoosh them. I didn't let the kids play with it though!
And a surprise strawberry even! I had to eat this one since it was the only one! ;)
