Laura’s Garden 2011

My daughter, Laura – age 8, surprised me by planting her own garden and working the soil, right in the middle of our front yard in an old stump we had been filling in with dirt. I didn’t even know she had planted the garden until she came running in one day after campmeeting and told me her cantaloupe seeds (that she planted before Campmeeting) had come up!

She also planted a beautiful sunflower. She also planted Tommy Toe Tomatoes (Yellow Grape Tomatoes) and Watermelon. Everything did very well. You can see how proud Laura was in the photos below:
