The problem with children being involved in your garden is that they can become a little too preoccupied with harvesting.

I did not realize that my wife had caught this moment. I had been working on my project; the girls were outside playing; my wife was on the phone; and my son was inside studying. I then heard my wife call out to me: “do you know what your youngest has been doing?” I had been too focused on my job, which is never a good thing (I have come to realize). I ask, and I am told that my youngest has been harvesting peppers. The little girl knew that I would not be happy, so she was making her escape inside.

Container planting can be great for the home or porch, but they do need a bit more care.

I wanted to share this photo. What a container for those plants. I wonder if they take care of it, or if it has gone wild. My father took this picture while he and my mother were visiting relatives in Uruguay. I do not think my neighbors would care for this, if I did it in my yard. I am more into containers this year. Container gardening can be a wonderful way to enhance a space, but they do need your attention more often than a garden bed.
