These are the people who sent Pooka seeds they didn't need last year that resulted in the herb garden, these are the same people who literally climbed into the garden to help with the last harvest. These are our family, and with them came some swapping and a few new projects and experiments for Pooka.
One of her uncles gifted her with some new houses for Green Thumb and her friends for her birthday. Pooka is excited to get to painting them (more on that later, I forgot pictures of it). Her Aunt Stephie gave her another root viewer. 2 of the same thing for this Pooka, not a huge deal, she is excited since I told her we would find colored carrots to put in it. In fact, she has been hounding me DAILY to go find them.

Even with the seeds I gave away, Pooka came away with new ones. She got some new basil seeds, some poblano seeds for Daddy, as well as a heirloom variety of rainbow cherry tomatoes which made Pooka so happy to have more colors in her garden. Aunt Stephie even gave Pooka some Blue Jade Corn seeds that are suppose to be able to grown in containers and give us nice ears of blue corn, which will make brother super happy too. Pooka is so thankful to have a family that cares about her and that they help her learn new things.
Sadly, then our family had to return to their homes, most too far away to see more then every few months. But they will come back, and Pooka is so excited to show them real plants, and then when they come back at the end of the summer, they will see how well she has cared for her garden.
Now I just need to figure out when to start the seeds we got, and where I am going to get new ones. I also need to get the plans figured out for where they are all going to go in the garden. Oh it seems the work is never done some days.
