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 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!!


  1. lol. very cute..... but did you actually get the cucumbers planted? lol

  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'!
