My family and I have been spending our weekends weeding, raking, and seeding our new fruit and vegetable garden, and I'm surprised how much I enjoy it. The time flies and, before I know it, several hours of calorie-burning activity have gone by. The best part is that it's something we can all do together. James Wilson had a great time choosing which seeds to plant. He decided on green beans, carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, zucchini, tomatoes, watermelon, and loads of basil and other herbs. We aren't sure yet which ones will actually grow, but I'll keep you posted! Do you guys have any gardening tips for me?
