it's true what they say

Everyone says kids love gardening and are better at eating their vege's when they help in the vege garden and I am amazed at how true that is! Our toddler loves helping with the watering and picking the 'harvest'. She is eating beans straight from the plant and loves courgettes now too. She loves picking the cherry tomatoes too but is still unconvinced as to the taste of them!
We bought a raised bed kit before Christmas so she can have her very own garden- my ideas for it are to have a swan plant to attract the monarch butterflies, some beans and peas as she really likes them, some flowers which we are going to plant to form a letter A, some sunflowers and maybe some blueberries too.
