Gardening With the Grands

This year I decided to start a vegetable garden. My initial intention was only to try my luck with luffa gourds but that grew into birdhouse gourds other vegetables.

I have carrots (which some critters ate all the tops off), cabbage, tomatoes, onions, corn, red skinned potatoes, white potatoes & sweet potatoes, peas, string beans and watermelon.

I am finding that gardening is more work than I thought but I do enjoy it. Another time for some peace of mind.

Arai has been asking to help in the garden so I got him and my other grand-kids, his friends, (all the little kids call me mom-mom) to help plant some corn seedlings.

My peas have begun to bloom

More images to follow in the coming days.

Thanks for visiting!

  2. Looks like a lovely vegetable garden. And I am sure it’s plenty of work. It always grows on one, doesn’t it.

  5. Love the article Robin. Gardening is especially educational when you have your grandchildren helping and asking you the type of questions you never even imagined. One questioned I had was: “where do the earth worms go ?” Never thought of that one.

  7. The garden must be fascinating for all the kids. (Love the “mom-mom” name. I had forgotten about that)


  8. Thank you for this post! This brought me back to when I was in the garden with my Grandmother. I thought it was so special as to what she was able to do in the garden! I too now have the love of gardening! This is something that your grand children will always remember you and all you have done. Stay blessed and happy Robin!

  10. What happened with the loufa gourds?? I want to try them soo bad. I like your raised beds, too. They are very simple but practical and earthy.


    • The luffa gourds are slow growers. They have just gotten to over 6 feet but have not flowered yet. Once the start to flower (I am unpatienly waiting)I will l post some pictures. Thanks!

    Teaching your kids good things such as how to be able to feed themselves off of the land is a good thing.
