A Good Crop

This year we planted lots of vegetables, and it has been so fun! I am totally into my crops. I water and weed them every day. I want to be a farmer. I want to rip up half the lawn and plant fruits and veggies. There is something very fulfilling about growing things that we can use.

Henry has been my helper with the girls gone. He helps me harvest the crops.

We are growing beans, peas, squash, cucumbers, zucchini, watermelon, cantaloupe, cabbage, brussel sprouts, carrots, eggplant, corn, different varieties of bell pepper, and hot peppers.

Henry's friends are all girls. I think it's because he has grown up playing with Charlotte all the time. He had two friends over the other day, and they played barbie, littlest pet shop, and swam. He is very in touch with his sensitive side. That's a good thing, right?

Maybe that sensitive side comes from being compared to a purse early in life.

I am so proud of your horticultural enthusiasm and achievements! I think it's the mini-fyes' pixie dust that helps your garden grow.

HENRY! What a little player! I love it! Girls love a good, sensitive guy friend tho. One of my best friends is a guy. Way to go kid!

Hi! How'd my crops that i toiled and slaved over turn out? Are you all enjoying the fruit of my labor?
p.s.: I agree totally with aimee. What's the point of it? to make peoples' brains hurt from stress?
