Gardening with Little Hands

I have to start by admitting that my gardening escapade began because I managed to kill most of the lovely little seedlings I just bought. It really shouldn't be that hard to just put them in the ground straight away, but alas, the days passed and they sat . . . I really had to try and save what I could.

So out I went with my helpers. I conveniently had a spare wooden tray that I used to use for displaying tights in at markets. I pulled it out ready for its next purpose.

One thing I know is that kids, my kids especially, love digging, and they love dirt. So it was easy work transferring dirt from an unused plant pot to the tray. Then with unstoppable enthusiasm they poked by wilted miserable looking seedlings into the dirt.

We were on a roll! We needed to plant more, and then more. Out came the egg trays, and the seeds - onions, carrots and lettuce. Then when that wasn't enough it was time for the peas.

I did take a quick glance at the trusty Sustainability Trust Gardening Calendar but there isn't much to be planting at this time of year so we just gave it a go.

To finish off was the forever favourite task of using the spray bottles. Spray bottles put to good use . . . at least for a few minutes.
