Our annual-spring garden is in the works! We hit the store yesterday and my two younger boys each got to pick out two seed-packets. I did veto the Lima beans but other then that their choice was completely on their own. (I picked up an additional 3 packets because I love the garden just as much as they do.) So this year we will have:
We pulled out the trays today with the little dirt-pods and took turns putting a seed in each pod. Then we closed the lid up and look forward to peeking in every day to see how our little sprouts are doing. My goal is to take a picture when they start growing each day … but in order to do that I have to find my MIA battery charger (ugh…).
Ah bring on Spring! I blogged about my love for the Vegetable Garden last year so if you are at all contemplating growing a garden with the kids (or by yourself) take a peak at these thoughts. *E*, 6 years-old, brought up the vegetable garden about two-weeks ago, before I made any sort of mention. *C*, 3 years-old, got a bit giddy as we got the tips of our fingers dirty in each pod with a seed.
Plant a seed (or several) today… and bring on the smiles 🙂
