I’m over at Keeper of the Home today sharing one of my favorite things to do with my children… garden!

Teach Your Child to Love Vegetables: Gardening with Children.

I’ve been gardening with my children since they were itty bitty, involving them in the entire process.  It brought tears to my eyes seeing them so little and how much they’ve grown over the years.

I treasure each moment that I spend with them in the garden and can’t believe how quickly time passes.

I hope you join me over at Keeper of the Home today.

I especially enjoy pursuing this hobby with my children. If you take a look at my organic gardening archives you’ll see that they’ve been helping me in the gardens since they were itty bitties.
