Early Planting (Spinach, Peas, Carrots, Radishes)

Antonio and I got out into the garden to do some early season planting. We planted in a 9 gallon container some spinach, snap peas, carrots and radishes. Antonio really enjoyed helping out, he really got into it with me. After sowing the seeds, he went all by himself to check on the balloon flowers that we had transplanted last week, and wanted to add some compost onto them to make sure they grow well.


  1. How exciting! I just harvested spinach from my bed yesterday. We got 6 salads out of it - yeah. Nothing like a freshly picked spinach salad when it's 20 outside.

    Letting your kids help is such a great way to get kids interesting in gardening and eating their veggies (he's a cutie by the way!).

  2. Wow, I am impressed. I just received my book about containter and companion gardening.
