    Hi Tara, I want you to know that my earliest memories are of my mom sreaming at me to stop eating the worms! I used to find them and suck on them and then spit them out. Now you should be happy your daughters find them disgusting…

      That is quite the image. I can imagine why your mother was hollering at you. So you had a mouth full of dirt and worms? I love it!

      Oh no – don’t tell me that it’s easy to grow. I’ll be a sobbing heap when my lettuce fails and wilts. 😉

      Fingers crossed that it’s a successful crop. I have a knack for garden hijinx. 🙂

    haha YES! I love your little garden. One of these years I’m going to actually do it. The first summer after Aaron and I were married, I planted tomatoes. And they died. So yeah… everyone always says it’s impossible to kill tomatoes. But you know, I like to challenge the impossible. What can I say?
    But next year I’ll be brave enough to actually garden again. Maybe.

      Oh, I don’t think it’s impossible to kill tomatoes! I think that they need to be babied and hovered over. You’re not alone there!

      I also have heard that roses are the hardiest plant out there. Well, I’m pretty sure that two of mine died this year. TWO! Awesome track record there.

      Thanks, Danni. I know that you’re very proficient in the art of growing stuff – I hope to have a small-to-medium harvest from these beds. (Though honestly, if I got two tomatoes and a head of lettuce, I’d do a dance of glee!)

      Oh thank you, Clydia! They’re trying to be helpful gardeners… though I do worry that plants are going to be plucked from their beds willy-nilly. It’s a danger when you let kidlets help… they might try to “help” when you’re not looking! 🙂

    Lol Tara! You are too hilarious. Good luck to your little planties… last year I planted my tomatoes too close together and they ended up in a big jumbled mess with lots rotting underneath the cage of intertwined tomato branches. This year will hopefully be better:)

      Thanks – I hope that my plants make it all the way to harvest time. I’m worried that my tomatoes might do the same and become a giant tangled mess. I have a few in pots, but then I worry if the pots are big enough. Why is this gardening thing so worrisome?!?! GAH!

    Hilarious! Teachable moment…hahaha! They didn’t embrace that worm, huh? And, if course veggies grown with love are worth the cost. When your big footed wife laboratory over tomatoes you just go along with it…or, you go to the store and buy a few and place them near the vines 🙂

      That’s right – when the Sasquatch wants to garden, you let her garden! 😉

      I hope that if my tomatoes ARE a huge fat failure that Hubby thinks to go buy some tomatoes and stage them in the garden. I’ll go along with it – I just want SOMETHING to come from this gardening saga!
