Digging in the Dirt

     As seen in some of my earlier posts, I am becoming more aware and appalled at the amount of pesticides we find on our "healthy" fruits and vegetables.  Whenever possible, I do buy organic produce and pay close attention to those on the "Dirty Dozen" list.  Unfortunately, it can be hard to find organic at times and it is of course much more expensive.
     We don't have the fortune of living in a home with enough yard to grow a proper garden, so with my mom's help, we decided to give it a try at the cottage.  I am not sure if little Peter Rabbit will make his own feast when we are not there but if so, it has been a great learning opportunity for the girls.  They are always up for an opportunity to dig in the dirt and my mom is also determined to pass down her gardening skills to her grandchildren.  Only time will tell if we will be eating our own swiss chard, kale, carrots, beets, tomatoes potatoes, squash, zucchini, and onions.

Digging some holes for the tomato plants.

Watching the vegetables grow

We can only keep a two year old interested for so long.  She then began her own search for bugs.

Look at the cute little "pider", mama!
