The Boys Garden Project
What do you get when you give three boys a shovel,eight boards, a length of rope, a packet of birdhouse gourd seeds, and a packet of pumpkin pie pumpkin seeds? A lovely surprise. Enlisting the help of my go-getter hubby we built a frame for the vines to climb up. Honestly at times I was beginning to wonder about this projects. It seemed like forever that all we had was a wooden frame with rope wove around it. A wooden frame in the yard is not a pretty sight after a while! However, once it rook off it went crazy. We have to keep trimming it back to keep it from taking over the back half of our backyard. We got this project idea from Roots, Shoots, Buckets, and Boots by Sharon Lovejoy. Her books are a delight for kid and adult alike! If you haven't checked one out for yourself you really must - you will not be disappointed - you'll just might have problems trying to decide what to do.
