|And here are our herbs. (Left to right) Stevia, sweet mint, Italian parsley, and sweet basil. Everything seems to be growing well. I've already pinched the basil back once to encourage it to bush out and there are new little stems starting.|
Hopefully we get a decent yield. Jack is really into the garden. Usually the first thing he says when we go out back is "let's go see the garden". He likes to talk about the plants and really check them out.
|Jack likes to "read the clues" (a.k.a. the little information markers that come with the plants). Look at that post-lunch belly!|
Last night we picked our first cherry tomato and he thought it was pretty fun to pick and eat it! There would have been one other cherry tomato ready to eat a few days ago, but someone's little fingers might have been a little too rough while checking out the plants and it fell off a little prematurely ;)
