planter boxes

so dad and i made some planter boxes to grow some plants in this summer, and here are some pictures of the two we made

 This box is all tomato plants--there are some cherry, romas, and others
 This box has a basil plant, one tomato, a few peppers, as well as onions, chives, and garlic (those are the only plants I didn't start with starters, and they're still tiny)
and those are my planter boxes
thanks dad for helping me build them, and mom for helping me get them up to  logan

easy chocolate no bakes

1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. milk
4 tbsp. cocoa
2 c. sugar 
1 Tab. vanilla
1/2 c. chunky peanut butter 
3 c. quick oats
marshmellows or nuts

Microwave butter, milk, cocoa and sugar in large bowl on high for 3 minutes. Stir, microwave for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and peanut butter, stir until melted. Add oats, and stir in nuts or marshmellows. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet covered with waxed paper. Refrigerate until cool. Makes 24 large cookies. This one is easy enough for kids to do.

this is pretty yummy if you add some honey or whipped cream :)
