I love having Red Chief helping in the garden. He learns a lot, and I think he's going to be more excited about eating the vegetables this year since he helped plant them. He has to go look at his peas the first thing every time we go outside. This weekend we planted some flower seeds and some parsley plants while Mr. Mordecai laid some sod that our friends kindly gave us.
It's so nice to see our yard coming together and looking more respectable. When we moved in last year, it would have been easy to give it up as hopeless, because it really was terrible. Red Chief couldn't play outside because there were so many sticker plants, and it wasn't really a pleasant place to be.
But now there is grass where the weeds used to be (mostly), there are two garden boxes and a swingset in the backyard, and some of the sprinkler problems are fixed. There's still lots to do, but I'm so happy to see improvement. Thanks for all you've done to improve our yard, Mr. Mordecai.
