Planting a Garden

Posted by Courtney on April 11th, 2013. Filed under: Food, Kids.

With all of our moving over the years, we have not had the chance to indulge in the planting of a garden. This year we built planter boxes, filled them with healthy soil, and then this Saturday we planted!

Each of our kids gets their own box. They got to fill it with seeds & seedlings. And now, they get to be in charge of watering and weeding their little square foot plot of goodness. They have been out a couple times a day to carefully water each little plant or mound of dirt.

I highly recommend giving each of your children to grow some of their own food. Even if it is that they each get a pot to plant one thing that they choose. lessons in doing so are endless.
