Project 52 – Week 10

March 27, 2014
Children and Gardening

Fresh, organic and cheap vegetables are the primary culprits of my new gardening obsession.  I’ll even venture to say that I am truly getting a kick out of seeing the seedlings germinate in such a short amount of time and I am waiting patiently to see the first signs of real, tangible sprouts. What I hadn’t taken into consideration is how educational this seed starting process has been for my children.

Children and Gardening

 Daily they race to the pots to see what sprouted over night or while they were at school. I have to pry the watering can out of little hands lest she drowns my poor tomatoes before they get a good start at life. This week it has dawned on me that there are so many teachable moments if we take the time to see them.

This weekend, the children will get the opportunity to start their own little gardens with the seeds of their choice. The little one says she doesn’t want any carrots in hers because they make her “burmpt,” that would be burp. She ate a carrot ONE time and burped right after and she hasn’t been the same since.

What unexpected moment have you used lately to teach your child(ren) something? Have I convinced you to start a garden yet?!!
