In Pennsylvania, each of our three kids had a little garden plot to call their own. They
were aligned side by side in the back yard, along the fence that separates
them from their neighbor friends. Our biggest boy, Max, had his garden
the longest. Through the years, it went through lots of different plantings, from
vegetables to annuals and perennials. Over time, I enlarged the three kid-gardens,
and helped Max plant new perennials. One year, he looked forward to seedlings from
the Japanese morning glory that volunteered in his garden the previous year, as well
as a couple of strawberry plants and strawflowers I had promised him. It would have
been even better if he had kept up with the weeding through the year!
The picture below shows Max's bounty from his first year as a gardener. He's
much bigger now, and off to college!
