HSV Garden Challenge Post #2

We have been away from home so I honestly have no idea how our gardens back home are doing.  Between not being able to care for the garden and the recent tornados that moved through the area, I am thinking that we may need to replant when we return home.  So far we had planted peas, spinach, kale, parsley, basil, beets, and broccoli.  We plan on planting okra, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, carrots, and rosemary.  Also tossing around the idea of planting some sweet potatoes, strawberries, or other kind of berry.

Before we left we were able to eat some peas from our garden and I dehydrated lots of yummy parsley!  "M" LOVES the peas!  She would eat handfuls of them at a time.  You can see my blog on that here. 

One of the first projects we did at Grammy and PopPop's house was plant some basil and parsley in mini pots.  "M" cares for and waters these plants as necessary.

Swing by the Homeschool Village to read about what others are doing as part of their Garden Challenge!
