If you haven't clicked over to my blog lately, you've missed the FirstGiving widget I've put up. It's time again for the Great Moms Walk. Please help support my MOPS group!

For a while now, I've wanted to plant some vegetables or fruits.

I'd thought about strawberries because I remember picking them from my grandparents' farm in Tennessee, but then I remembered picking them at my parents' house here in Texas. Quite a different story. The quality and quantity was considerably less.

So, I thought about cucumbers. I love them and love making sweet pickles and I remember picking them when I was less than 5 years old at our house in Amarillo. After talking with my dad, I settled on cucumbers because they are so easy to grow. (The lady at Lowe's agreed!) So, today, Emily and I went to Lowe's to get a planter box, some potting soil (not a potty stool, as Emily heard me say!) and some seeds. Just before naptime, we planted seeds not only in the planter we bought, but in two more pots as well. For as cheap as the seeds were ($0.68!), what could it hurt? And, Emily has been super excited ever since we bought the seeds this morning! I sure hope these work!

Can't wait to get more of those Sloan pickles that Emily loves so much.

She really enjoyed it and keeps wanting to go check on them! Now that we have a watering can with a more "shower" spout, she can water them herself!
