Planting Seeds

It's gotten to the time of year that seeds need planting and the garden needs preparing!

I've been working on my veg bed for a while now, the raspberrys are in (although a little late so I'm not sure we'll get much success from them), carrots and onions are sown and the strawberries are getting stronger!

I planted some Sunflowers on behalf of my 2 boys about a month ago and they are going strong

But I thought it would be nice to have something they could take home so I had a little rummage in my *overflowing*seed box and thought some cucumbers might be quite nice!

Baby 'A' had a lovely time exploring the mud

...giving it a taste

...didn't quite get the idea of putting it in the pot hehe

...but very interesting texture to explore!

Then it was little 'C's turn!!

He understood a little bit more about putting it in the pot
...and then promptly poured it out again!
He just couldn't resist giving it a little taste either....and then thought it was very funny to tip it all over the floor!

We had a lovely morning exploring this new brown stuff, it's smell, taste and texture, next month we need to some gourds and pumpkins so we can explore it all over again!!

  2. I did end up 'helping' out quite a bit towards the end to make sure we got something growing, one or two seeds did disappear into baby 'A'!
