Planting SeedsPosted: May 10, 2011 Filed under: Child Centered Activities, Farming off the Farm, Little Green Thumbs 2 Comments
This weekend we planted spinach, sugar snap and carrot seeds and transplanted our mixed green and arugula sprouts. In another month or so we will plant cucumber, patty pan squash, brussel sprout and pumpkins seeds along with tomato starters. Farmer Martha has some extra eggplant starters so we’ll add those to the collection. Our little one walked around saying “Good hepper (helper), good hepper”.
watching the little hands do the digging, brought a tear to my eye. good heppa good heppa indeed…such a gift teaching a child to sow……a more profound life lesson it is hard to imagine…..give the little farmer a big fat kiss, please!
Yes, truly wonderful to watch. Can’t wait to plant some more seeds and watch them grow! Our girl is so proud of herself – so sweet. Thanks for checking in!
