Square Foot Gardening Update

A few weeks ago Hotty Hubby built a new garden box for Mr. Smackdown.

This day marked the end of nap times in this four year old's life. And the end of "me time" for this mom. The future farmer was very excited about the demise of his baby-days and his entry into afternoon life.
I am not sure if he was more proud of his garden or his lack of sleep.

Today, I went out to see what the Future Farmer's garden looked like. We haven't been watering it, due to the copious rain we have received. However, I think Mr. Smackdown might have a green thumb, with the help of God, of course.
Can you see all the green sprouts?

Now, my garden remains a bit neglected. The Winter Wheat is loving its freedom and the garlic appears to enjoy the soil, judging from how large and full the stalks are.

And yes, we changed the fence around the garden. Now that we have a subdivision behind our house, the deer have disappeared and found a more quiet place to munch. It is so much nicer just to hop over the garden, instead of undoing the fences.
The strawberries have blooms! It is going to be an exciting summer.
