The kid's Recycled Organic Back Yard Garden in a 30 Second Video

We've actually got the seedlings into the ground in the garden and have been watering every day! Here's a 30 second video of our progress:

We had a good week in regard to progress on the backyard garden. But, also had our first disappointment. After getting everything in the ground, and watering for a few days, we went out today to find two tomato plants broken off. We have not yet determined if it was due to over zealous children watering them or from a bird or squirrel or such. But, we hope the remaining plants grow.

We used an online program where you can click and drag plants onto a virtual garden to help plan it, along with a book called Good Companions, about what to plant side by side to prevent common pests and help specific vegetables grow. Now, all we need is advice on a lemon tree as that's what my son wants.

In our effort to stay organic and recycle, we used the sides of a plastic milk jug to write the plant names - And, as strange as it sounds, they turned out really cute. I cut the circle section of the sides and then formed a tear drop shape to stake it into the ground.
