Here's three year old Kristin planting a whole field of corn all by himself.
We'd give him a stick to space the seeds evenly.
Then we gave him a little tiny hoe and he would hoe corn every day all summer long.
Now he's a big strong boy who doesn't mind working hard in the sun.
When harvest time came, they snapped beans for hours.
Well, Mama read them stories while they worked.
So they loved every minute of it.
This picture makes me nostalgic.
It's the only year that I can remember that we had nearly all the kids planting.
Only the baby isn't out there. He couldn't walk a straight line yet.
The next year, Katie moved on to her own garden.
But first she taught another brother the wisdom of the spacing stick.
This year she is passing that wisdom onto her own boy.
