This past weekend the boys and I made a small garden. Since we are spending the summer in Oregon Carter and I have been really missing our garden back home. I saw several cute kid’s gardens online and thought it would be fun to make one here for the summer. We bought most of our supplies at the Dollar store, Bi-mart, and Walmart. I really wanted a white picket fence around the garden, but was not successful in finding one. We did manage to find lots of other cute things that turned out just perfect.
The boys really enjoyed digging in the dirt and planting different seeds. We planted sunflowers, green beans, lavender, and cantaloupe. These were just some of the seeds I brought with me so I am not sure if the season is right or not. We also purchased a few plants, basil, strawberry, and squash.
I wanted to make the garden very colorful, so I tried to find small accessories to place around the garden. We found a small wind chime, some solar lights, a spinning flower, a couple of rakes, shovel, and watering can. I then painted a few pieces of drift wood that my parents found on the beach. Eventually I want to place the Carter and Cooper’s Garden sign on a stake, but that will require my husbands help.
