Kai's garden :)

We are about to embark on a quest.

Kai watched the episode of The Magic School Bus where they talk about growing a garden and how plants grow. She has decided that she wants to grow a garden this summer.
Our planting season was delayed due to a very cold start to spring but now its warm and raining almost every day.
Up here the farmers Rule of Thumb is to not plant til after Memorial Day weekend because it should be done frosting over at night by then.
I was surprised and disappointed at our local Menards store's selection of Vegetable plants. It was like half any aisle and not much to choose from. I got some basics and we'll take it from there.
We are going to try our hand at Square Foot Gardening

PICS to come of Kai helping me :)
