I have shared it with my kids and am now starting with my first grandchild, Lily.
Last week, we made a Valentine's Day present for her mom and dad.
We started with a trip to the nursery...
We bought two types of flowers for a fragrant container - Stock and Alyssum.
I already had the pot, the potting soil and slow-release fertilizer - so we were good to go.
When I had planned to do this with Lily - I had counted on my husband being there to take pictures of us. But, he had to leave at the last minute to take the dog to the vet (abscessed tooth - he's okay now).
So, I had to take the photos myself, while making sure that Lily didn't fall off the bench - hence the picture, above, of her sitting in my lap.
She seemed pretty steady on the picnic bench, so I let her sit by herself for a few seconds for this picture...
She did just great, but I did have to teach her not to pull the flowers off - I think that is first lesson that I have had to teach each of my kids.
When my daughter came over to pick her up later that day - Lily had a pretty container of flowers to give to her mom.
Lily is 15-months old and at a great age to start letting her accompanying me in the garden.
Next week, I think we will pull some carrots from the vegetable garden for her to take home.
My 15-year old daughter, Ruthie, loves the vegetable garden. I hope that she will continue to enjoy gardening as she grows up.
How about you? Do you like to garden with your kids or grandkids?
