gardening with children


The littlest Bradshaw and I have been planting lots in our new raised bed. Inspired by Garden Organics square foot gardening concept we have planted crops of peas, carrots, spring greens, tomato and courgette closely together, with the taller plants at the back. In between the rows of vegetables we have planted 'companion plants' of edible flowers, marigold and nasturtiums.  The boy is in charge of watering, and I am in charge of squealing when he waters my feet!

  1. Gardening with kids is so much fun. My 4yr old loves planting and watering but my 8 yr old has unfortunately 'out-grown' the activity. He tends the chickens instead!
