Love How Our Garden Grows | Savannah Photographer

Gardening for the Andersons is in our blood. My grandfather was a gardener, my mom is a gardener, my husband has a horticultural degree, and I love gardening. So I had no doubt that Annika would become a lover of gardening as well. I am new to this zone 8 thing here in Savannah, Georgia. I am hoping to get to grown some new plants down here.

When I went out to get all the supplies to start our garden this year, I picked up three “kits” for kids to have their own garden. She gets to grow a sunflower, a pumpkin and a watermelon. She was so excited, she kept shouting, “I get my own garden, I get my own garden!” She couldn’t wait to get started. Of course, right after the seeds were planted, she wanted to know when they would grow. “I am going to go take a nap and when I wake up, they will be plants!” Yeah, right.

Are they ready now Mom? Can I keep them by my bed so I can watch them grow?

As we explore gardening here in Savannah, I will continue to document our progress throughout the spring, summer and fall.

    We have these, too! My kids love to garden! We had a nice garden last year and it got flooded out :( Looking forward to spring!

  • It’s never too early to start growing a gardener. Hurrah for Annika! And for you!

  • Oh what fun! I know your daughter, will have a lot of fun with this project. I can not wait to see how they grow. Great pictures!

  • That’s so awesome and I wish I loved gardening but perhaps one day I will, as for right now everything I touch that’s in a garden dies,lol. This is so great for Annika though, and all kids as it teaches them so much, I’m grateful that they are doing something similar at my child’s school.

    I was not made to play in the dirt. I try to teach my children that farming and gardening is something very hard and to be respected… and we lovingly shop the Farmer’s Market to enjoy the goodness of fresh fruits and veggies.

  • We have 24 acres and aspirations to plant a garden… my thumb is SO not green!! You’ll have to send me pointers for sure!!! (and Layla has those pjammies too…).

  • Rhonda Imbeault

    aww I love doing this! Its far off here but definitely something I look forward too!

  • Awww I LOVEEE gardening….something about planting and seeing the fruits of your labour….aah yes. Love it!

  • OH how fun!! My daughter was begging me yesterday at the store for a plant for her room! I told her we shall see but I’m thinking I just might do it! :)

  • ahhh how sweet. I have to do this with my kids soon…

  • ahhh how fun! I need to do this with my kids soon as well.

  • Too cute! My mom has the greenest thumb and she is passing that along to my kids. We have had a few growing projects lately. Love this!

  • Kayla Renckly

    That sounds so fun! Too bad it’s so hot and dry most of the time here-not much grows unless you want to pay a fortune to water it.

  • Tyjuana Hill-Smith

    How fun! I can’t wait to see the pics of the fruits of her labour!

  • Wow, won’t this be a fun thing to do as a family!!! I definitely do not have a green thumb and our landscaping is prime example of this….I admire anyone with beautiful gardens. Keep sharing!!!

  • so much fun! I love how excited they get over the smallest of things. really brings me back down!
