1) Grow a garden
This spring we planted our first family vegetable garden. In march we started a few things from seed inside and then Easter weekend, the bee and I planted the rest of the seeds in our raised beds. The new raised bed gets sun most of the day and the plants have been growing insanely big insanely fast. We are growing lettuce, cucumbers, peas, peppers, pumpkin, watermelon, eggplant, broccoli, tomatoes, zucchini, radishes and carrots. In the last few weeks we have harvested radishes (not a family favorite) , lettuce, cucumbers and zucchini all of which were Delicious. The bee has been a great garden helper watering, pulling weeds and picking veggies when they are ready. She also planted her own sunflowers, at her request, which she is watching very carefully for the flower.
