Day 330... Planting Day- How does our garden grow part 2!!

We have been waiting for MAY 1st  for our big planting day!! 
It is lots of fun to shop for plants. 
We are starting off small with a few tomato plants, rosemary, and basil. 
Prepping our soil. 
We are potting our Rosemary and Basil in pots.
Jack planting a few Sunflower seeds!! I am really hoping these come up.
We mixed big Sunflowers and smaller ones. 
Maddie liked helping Grandma get the plants in the ground. 
Tomato plants and sunflowers done. We saved a few more on the other fence line for Carson to do when he gets home from school. 
Maddie wanted to buy a watering can but I saw this idea for a milk jug watering can. 
Maddie was the first to water the garden. The watering can worked great other than her dropping it in the dirt. It was a little heavy for her. :) Next time I will fill it with less water. 

Lots of hard work getting things planted. It will be fun to watch it grow. 


  1. Looks like spring has sprung in Georgia. Can't wait to see the sunflowers. Will you guys harvest the seeds??

  2. Not sure Liz.. We'll see if they grow. I will have to research what we need to do to harvest the seeds. :)
