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.
Do you garden with your children? Feel free to share your stories in the comments below 😀
We have never gardened, but our children like to dig holes in the yard. Maybe this is a good sign they would be good helpers? (: I was actually planning on this being the year to have our first garden, but I don’t know anything about it. I grew up with my dad having a nice big garden but it really wasn’t a family affair. But it did intrique me as a child and I liked being able to grab a snack of carrots or green beans without having to ask permission and it was right next to the swingset. (: I love that you have had your children help you since the time they were very little!! That’s funny they play pirates instead of farmers. But I am just getting aquainted with the uniqueness of the world of boys. My son is only 2! Is there any reading you could suggest that would lay out all the in’s and out’s of gardening basics? And any tricks to keep from having to weed constantly? I am a little concerned how I would grow anything considering anything inside I kill. :O That is why if my hubby gives me flowers, it’s best they are cut instead of potted, because they are expected to not live anyhow. 😀
