I know I never blog but today was one of those times where I just felt like I really wanted to remember it and I knew I just wouldn’t if I didn’t document! So here I am, documenting.
Anyway spring is finally finally here after a loooooooooong coooooooold winter. Finally! I saw our first robin today so it’s legit. I know other people have claimed they’ve seen robins, and some have even texted me pictures of said robins, but I haven’t seen any in person, so it didn’t count.
Anyway spring has me just dying to see stuff growing and to get started in the gardens. Of course nothing is actually growing yet and I can’t get in the gardens for weeks still, so I was forced to buy some trays and soil and seeds and start some stuff indoors. I always want to do that but never do- I’m never sure where to put stuff. But today we did it and set up trays in Oliver and Ivy’s rooms. And let me tell you- they are thrilled. Those two are my little gardening buddies. Ivy especially, but Oliver likes to see things grow too.
He was so excited to have his own “garden center” in his room. We planted pink, blue, and white pumpkins, red sunflowers, blue poppies, milkweed, black eyed susans, sweet peas, and I can’t remember what else. Oliver is convinced we are going to get RICH selling pumpkins and sunflower seeds this fall. I saw pink pumpkins for $10 a pop at the farmers market last year so I’m kind of hoping he’s right. 😉
As soon as we had everything planted and set up in their rooms he got straight to work making a to-do list for his mini garden center.
I think it’s one of the best/funniest to-do lists I’ve ever seen.
I’ll translate for those of you who no longer speak seven year old.
- plant seeds
- water plants
- make tons of moolah
- build more shops
- check on plants dayley (aka daily 😉)
- sell more plants
- get rich
- do da floss (this is a dance move that you definitely know if you currently have kids)
- and also best mate (this is another dance move from a video game called Fortnite that you also definitely know if you currently have kids)
And here’s the backside of his list:
- design logo
And those are two flowers doing the aforementioned floss and best mate dance moves.
Guys I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty excited about Oliver’s future greenhouse empire. Especially because he said I could work there and take home plants for free.
Whether it pans out or not I’m really happy to have kids that enjoy gardening as much as I do and I love all the memories we make together working in the dirt. I can’t wait to see everything popping up in our little mini garden centers this week.
