Week seven in the garden

Daddy went to work on the garden as soon as he and Mommy got home from church today. The mint plants needed to go into the ground. Look at my hard working Daddy. I tried to convince him to use a shovel but he said there's nothing better than working the ground with your hands.
After they'd all been planted, Daddy said they needed lots of water. Too bad we didn't know the rain was coming...and staying, all day.
Our heirloom tomatoes, kale, herbs, and onion are doing great!
Our other seeds have started sprouting too! We couldn't believe it. We were very excited to see the heirloom tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, and stevia.
The potatoes have yet to make an appearance. It rained almost all day today. But guess what? It stopped raining just in time for our walk. Whew! Did everyone enjoy their weekend?
