veggie garden

Filed under: garden, maja, video — freeformkatia @ 7:32 am

As I mentioned yesterday, I have a small plot at a community garden about 2 blocks from our house. Unfortunately this is the last year for the garden, as the property has been sold for $5.3 million. That’s expensive dirt. But you know, someone doesn’t spend that much money on a piece of land to let a bunch of gardeners continue cultivating weeds.

Anyway, I planted lots of tomatoes, some beets, carrots, and mixed greens. I also have the raspberry bushes I put in last year!

I take Maja to the garden after school and she “helps” me  water the garden. I found out, the hard way, that toddlers and garden hoses don’t mix — so I bought her a little watering can, which she LOVES. I probably have to fill it up 10-15 times each time we go to the garden, but it keeps her away from the hose. Which is my primary goal.

And, if you like the videos…

She first says she’s watering the tomatoes, then changes that to carrots. Mom, that green bushy stuff at the top of the video screen is all that garlic chive you planted in there last fall! It’s thriving.



  1. Maja looks adorable with her little water can!!!

    I’m soooo sorry the land has been sold… I wish they wouldn’t sell land that is being used by the local community -it’s not good :o(

    Enjoy this season and best of luck with all the veg! It’s looking great :o)

  2. All little children should have access to a plot of dirt to tend things and make them grow. She’s one lucky little girl!
