Plant a Rock Garden

Over the weekend we bought seed packets to make our favorite salad - radishes, carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers, some herbs - thyme (for this Next Food Network Star winning chicken recipe) and cilantro. We also planted something sweet and spicy - strawberries and jalapeños. We found a small area with lots of sun, prepped the dirt and planted the seeds.
Then we went rock hunting throughout our yard and found various shapes and sizes. We painted each (with an acrylic paint set from Aaron Brothers) to replicate what would grow where - Cucumber, tomato, strawberry, carrot. Now our garden is colorful from day one and it was a fun craft to share with the kids.
