Sunflower House, step 1

by threegirlpileup


Although it’s a busy weekend, I was able to spend a couple of hours outside working in the vegetable garden.  In addition to the inevitable weeding and bed-clearing that happens this time of year, I was able to plant some onions, carrots, and a few peas.  (Yay, peas!)  There’s more to come, but it felt good to get some seeds into the ground.

The other project I started today was our sunflower house.  Inspired by Roots, Shoots, Buckets and Boots, I was inspired to try and grow a sunflower house for my fairy-obsessed children.  I mentioned the idea to Maggie, and she positively glowed with excitement.  So today, I laid out plastic to kill a big swath of grass for planting.  Stay tuned for updates.
