Sienna was still wearing her sandshoes (joggers/runners) from the 5km Charity Fun Run we did in the morning. When I say "we" I mean James and Sienna ran the 5kms and I walked about 3kms with sandshoes that were too tight so it wast very uncomfortable. Now back to gardening, Sienna and I had a lovely time together and she was planting and we were chatting, and I was taking photos. She said "I love it when we do this together and I love spending time with you".
The boy of the house was inside on his iPod (his allowed 1 hr after he ran his 5km race in 25 mins which I was pretty impressed with) and Sienna said to me that she'd rather be outside than inside playing on the iPod to which I replied "oh well, that's his relaxation and that's alright" (and that's because he has limited time on it as ruled by me). The girls of the house were outside and enjoying the fresh air and we were both so happy when the garden bed was planted out.
I can only dream of a veggie garden like this over at Ock Du Spock and how it all started here however for my little family these three little garden beds are fine. Such lovely memories of our afternoon and this is really what makes me truly happy. So what we planted was two types of lettuce (butterhead and something like an iceberg) lots of spring onions, celery, capsicum and thyme for our baked beans recipe.
