"Shhh, Mummy listen, makes a noise" - vigorous shaking of packets
"Oops" - rips open pansy seeds over coffee table
"Look Mummy tiny seeds" - chubby little fingers pointing excitedly
Great - coffee table has grooves in it, some of those seeds are never coming out, will watch out for pansies sprouting soon, LOL
maybe I can start a new trend? Flowing tables?!Anyway, we made it into the garden and started our work. Flowerbed received an initial attack, thankfully we'd planned to rip it all out which was quite exciting when you are 2yrs old. Lots of digging with shiny new green tools, lots of pulling up of plants with new glowes, uncovering bugs, and lots of things for the big pink garden bucket.
Very well watered (with shiny new watering can)
We sat back and waited.....
A week later the sprouting has begun, it's all very exciting
I'm a little concerned that my son's play house and pots in his "front garden" are tended too more carefully than the rest of the garden put together. But it's great to teach him about nature and growing our own food no matter how small.
I was sent the #kidsgrowwild kit free of charge, the words of this post are all my own. This post is an entry for BritMums’ #KidsGrowWild Challenge
