This little terraced section was full of rocks. Amazingly, they were excited to help move them all over a corner of the yard. Erica taught the boys about shot puts, so they used the time for shot put practice.
They did a fairly decent job of hitting the general area, but it's probably a good thing no one was over there. The tall vegetation is our bakyard neighbors yard. Good thing they don't have a fence, because that way our yard gets lots of sun.
We planted lettuce, onions (red and yellow), corn- hope it grows because we've never had much luck with it before, tomatoes, cantaloup, watermelon, pumpkin, and my favorite- strawberries.
Tonight the little boys from next door came running around back while we were having Family Home Evening. After explaining that we couldn't play, we talked to them about only walking on the bricks or grass. They seemed to understand. We went upstairs for refreshments (Spencer made chocolate chip cookies by himself and the were awesome) , walked out on the deck to look down on our work, and saw where little footprints jumped from one row of planted seeds to another. It will be interesting to see who's tougher- plants or little boys! If the plants live long enough to produce food, they should be able to survive anything!
