Adventures from the Red Box

Remember those broken egg shells and that I told you were seeds planted in them? hummmmm?! Well, look at 'em now!
We (the Grands and I) planted them in a slightly raised bed.  (We have horrible soil here....raised beds is the only way to go).  I gave the instructions and the kids were the ones with dirty hands.  Just the way it should be. LOL!  Just for reference, the kiddo there is about 3.5 feet tall.

If you look really hard, you can see the bees in the center of this sunflower (there are 4 by my count).  I am hoping that we will get lots of sunflower seeds from all of this activity.  I'll be Googling how to 's on getting  seeds from the sunflowers and preparing them for consumption.  Hopefully by us and not the birds, but we will have to see about that one.

Oh MY Goodness Wendy!! Look at those beautiful sunflowers! Your Grandson looks so proud!

Some of my favorite childhood memories are digging around in my Grandpa's garden and helping pick the veggies. One time when we were digging up potaotes I found an upper set of dentures buried out there! LOL!!!!

Your Grandkids are going to have those wonderful memories too because you did this with them. And FYI. ALL kids are like trying to herd cats!! LOL!!

Thank you for you sweet words of encouragement and for letting me know I am not alone. Love, Jamie
