Garden update

More preparation to plant and grow more in our little garden was underway the other day.

I’ve been saving wee pots from our kitchen to plant our seeds into. So armed with enthusiasm we got stuck in.

The boys had great fun getting muddy, using trowels, and measuring out enough soil for each container using compost. Even our 18month old had fun joining in. Start them young.

We had decided on planting beans, carrots, beetroot and a variation of butternut squash. We’ve planted beans before and they were really successful. Planting the other types of vegetables provides a new experience for us all.

Once our gardening duties were performed we gave the newly planted seeds a little watering. We still had a lot of compost left so we poured it into our old paddling pool and brought out the dinosaurs to play with. The kids also loved just digging in the mud over and over again.

We also checked upon the potatoes planted last gardening time and our strawberries which come back every year.
