We have a place near the garage that has a cluster of aloe vera plants. The area has been riddled with weeds and it really has been a bone of contention for Johnny. He decided to tackle the area over the weekend. He pulled aloe vera plants out of a very small section of dirt. You can see here, the "circle" in front of my feet. It's not really a large area. But, you just have to take a look at how many plants came out of that tiny space. What did I tell ya? Look at all that aloe vera.....
And don't forget the 5 large plants here......
And this one....
We just couldn't believe how they were all growing on top of each other.
I need to point out the pretty new mulch also. A trip to Parker Lumber for potting soil and we came home with a load of mulch. It was on sale for an incredibly good price. Less than $2.50 a bag. We just could not pass it up. It looks nice in all the beds, doesn't it?
Here Caleb and Johnny are working on planting the aloe vera plants. I think Caleb has a goal to get them to take to their new pots and growing well, and then sell them. Not a bad goal for a 9 yr old. We have them in all sizes. He's going to work on a price list and I think it will be fun to see what he can make of it.
I truly enjoyed watching him work so hard to get them all planted, (with a little of dad's help.)
We will keep you updated on how the sale of aloe vera goes.
