We've been ready to put in a garden for a while but with all this April Fool's spring weather we've been having, Mother Nature obviously wasn't. So, we waited until a day after Indiana's official frost date before putting in the plants and seeds.

Luckily for us, there's an awesome nursery just a few miles from us and we're all practically kids in a candy store. There are thousands of plants in their giant greenhouse and it's a treat to walk up and down the aisles, choosing what was going in this year. We picked out our vegetables, let the girls all choose a flower to plant in a pot and headed back home.

And of course, being the big boy he is, Henry is all about helping.
Thankfully, some plants have been taking care of themselves. The garlic and chives we put in a few years ago have heartily come back and the lettuce and jalapeno peppers are doing nicely in the aquaponics tank.
