While one of us was seeing the ocean for the first time (that would be Matthew) and enjoying a week with Daddy... (For those of you that are new, I am married to a man in the Army. He is in a "deployment" position, which means we aren't able to live with him, but we are able to visit!)
...our garden was growing. Lots and lots of grass that is. I have alot of tedious weeding to do. Tedious because I've already pulled up 2 cinnamon basil seedling while trying to free them from the weeds.
After our 12 hour drive back from TX yesterday, I'm still a little tired, so I only got the peppers and the basils freed so far.
Matthew measured his sunflowers and found that they have really grown. They are 13" this week.
Matthew has a thick carpet of carrots! He is very proud of that as well. But after 2 mins of weeding, he was done. Oh well!
A side note about our strawberries. Our strawberry pampering is going well, as I found a sprout today. They made their trip to and fro well. Matthew's strawberries, although they say that they are same kind as the ones Mom and I bought, they have white flowers and are growing faster. Same kind, I think not! The ones in the flower beds have some small strawberries growing.
