Loved having my grandson help me get started on the garden work! While I was gathering the tools and gloves from the garage, he grabbed the lacrosse sticks and I figured he'd be lost in play.
As soon as he saw the shovel, his eyes lit up....dig in the dirt? Can I dig with my hands too? He took over the weeding, digging and planting; reminding me that planting was good for the earth right now since it was Earth Day on Monday. He was okay with work gloves.....but that dirt on his knees and clothes made him proud!
Great start for my Gardenyardigans to get the yard in shape! I'm going to let him help touch up the yard decorations with spray paint next visit.
Soon the twins will be planting annuals and finding the first Daisies to pick! When my big girls get here...they'll help with pruning the shrubs and harvesting the first strawberries!
And watering...sprinklers provide fun, laughs, exercise and a game of my-turn-to-move-the sprinkler! So yes; lots of watering and lots of dirt!
