Gardening is not really my thing. It’s one of those pursuits that I like better in theory than reality. So why did the kids and I plant our very first vegetable garden in the middle of a sweltering Texas summer?

Because even if gardening is not my thing, optimism totally is.


  1. That’s totally something I do. I hope your little seeds fare better than I’m sure mine would in the same situation!

  2. Ooh, I am impressed. I have the opposite of a green thumb, but my 2-year old is totally into digging in our “garden” (aka the flower beds in front of the house that hold only bushes and a few deer-nibbled impatiens). I feel inspired by those pretty galvanized buckets, though…hmm…
