Get the Kids in the Garden

My youngest has completely taken to the gardening life. He wants to cut the grass, cut old plants or to hoe the soil. My life has just got easier! 🙂

So I set about giving both my boys the task of sowing some seeds for radish, spinach and lettuce. These I chose as they are quick crops and the summer season is almost done.

With this I made some cloches to keep the soil warm a bit longer.

 

The first lesson for them was to make the drills for the seeds. Getting them NOT to make foot trenches was a challenge.

 

After that was the task of sparingly putting seeds into them.

 

Here’s my youngest hopefully covering gently the seeds.

And finally covering them in heavy plastic. It is quite surprising just how much hear they make.

I have to say this is a gamble considering the British weather. Yesterday for example was completely fogged out.

So in a week we will see if their work is successful 🙂
