Gardening with the Littles

April 10, 2013

I love springtime with my guys.  They are always finding something new in the garden for us to explore.  We recently planted carrots, zucchini,pumpkins, peas and beans and we noticed the other day that the little carrots are starting to grow.

A few weeks ago, I couldn’t figure out what a whole line-up of people was lined up for at the market.  The line-up was longer than the line-up for Bastille and that one was wrapped around the door!      It turns out it was eggs.  EGGS! These eggs are so popular at the Ballard Farmers […]
