This week it's a Three Word Gallery at Sticky Fingers. The three words I have chosen are Grow Your Own.
We're not big gardeners, but we like to keep the garden neat and tidy. As the children get older it is easier for us to all spend time outside.
My children love being out in the garden. They simply want to help. Here they are doing some weeding.
Thanks to the influence of Mr Bloom's Nursery they like to feed Compo (our compost bin) everyday. I let them.
We were invited to the launch of that and another new CBeebies programme (the mighty Rastamouse) earlier this year. Sadly, we couldn't make it (gutted doesn't get near how we felt), but they were kind enough to send us the goody bag from the event. In the bag were some lettuce seeds.
We sowed them in a pot, watered them and ran over to look at their progress every day.
We grew our own lettuce. What a fantastic thing to do and so simple.
Maybe we'll branch out and grow a few more veggies. I'll keep you posted.
