From Idea to Action


I am feeling so pleased today. 

And really grateful for my mom.

Today I actual DID something that I've SAID I wanted to do for a few months. I planted vegetables!

I'm not sure that I can yet say, "I have a vegetable garden." I'll save that for when I actually eat something that I've grown.

My mom gave me the space and treated me to a shopping spree at the garden center.  What fun! (Thank you SOO much mom!)  Since I have absolutely no knowledge of growing things, she advised about the spacing and arranging and did general oversight and a wee bit o' digging.

The exciting part is that now, I have actually put plants and seeds in the ground.  

Here's the proof!

I am pretty good at dreaming up ideas.  Or getting really excited about could-bes... but I feel like I often fall short on the execution end. 

I'm not sure if I just like talking a lot (very possible) or if I don't like to actually try things because I only really like doing things I KNOW I'm good at, or if I just am lazy.  It could be a tad bit of all three.

Whatever the case, I have really been making an effort to start DOING things that sound good to me.  And a vegetable garden is one of those things. 

Yay for feeling accomplished!

Jack enjoyed it too!
