Our first planets

Jordan and I just planted our first "planets" (plants) today. We made paper planting pots, filled with soil and planted Jack Be Little pumpkins. It took us about an hour...with a 3 year old you have to have patience :) We also looked at lots of pretty pictures of gardens found here on this website. She cannot wait to take her "planets" outside to grow in the dirt, although we are getting 4" of snow tonight. We are also soakiing a couple bean seeds for her to take home and watch grow. I think we are going to have lots of fun this summer. Kim

Ok, she needs to spell her name on the computer now...

Congrats to you and Jordan on what I am sure was a FUN day. If you want to send postage, I have a few Tigger melon seeds that I can share, they are wonderful for the little ones. Email me directly if interested, Les

RE: Our first planets

How adorable! My two youngest, Vincent (10)and Devin (8) helped me today like they do every year in our gardens. We planted Lavender, Stocks, Morning Glories, Sweet Peas and Four O'Clocks. We're doing veggies next week. Then they each get to decide what they'd like to plant in their own pot that they will be responsible for taking care of completely. Devin's wanting to look up different plants and flowers to decide. Isn't gardening with children the best thing in the world?!
