Another Generation of Gardeners

When the grand-girls visited last week, we planted cucumbers, leeks, green onions and herbs in the garden box. Now they have plants to water each time they visit.

 

The girls love cucumbers and they are looking forward to picking and eating them.

Over one hundred years separate my grandparents and their great great granddaughters. However, I know Gus and Monnie would be pleased their descendants are learning to grow food.

  3. I know just how they feel. I was a young gardener once, too, and it was only a few years ago. I wish I had started early like them. :-)

    1. They need to learn to respect nature at an early age I think. Knowing how to grow food is part of it!

  4. I think it's great to get children involved with gardening, plus showing them where their food comes from.
