My dear boy has been waiting patiently to get started on his very own garden, but alas, we have been rained out again and again. Every spare sunny day has had Mama and Daddy working in the veggie gardens, in a mad dash to get things planted before the rain settles back in on us. So, while Lynden has decided exactly what he’d like to grow in his garden – sunflowers, beans, cucumbers, carrots – and where he’d like his garden to be, Mother Nature doesn’t seem to want to make it possible for him to get out there and plant. (Who knew we could get this much rain!?)
In an effort to satisfy Lynden’s desire to get gardening, I purchased this nifty little book, “Good Growing – A Kid’s Guide to Green Gardening“. It comes with two packets of seeds and two little trays for sprouting – instant gratification! A perfect project to start on tomorrow morning. Lynden loves sprouts (heck, we all do!) and his interest in growing his own sprouts has been piqued by the bright, fun photos contained within the book. I hope this little side project will be enough to satisfy him until the ground dries up enough to get his garden going!
