This afternoon I spent time assembling the upside down hanging planters that I got at the really great price. I let the kids help put the soil and the plants in each planter. I let them use some of the toy gardening tools that I found for them at the toy store. First, they carefully put the baby plants in each planter. They both had smiles on their faces as they heaved small shovel fulls of soil into the planters. They carefully put the baby plants in each planter. We had one for peppers, one for tomatoes, and another for strawberries. Once all of them had enough soil they sprinkled on some plant food and topped them off with water from the toy watering cans.
I labeled each of the planters with pictures of each type of fruit that the girls colored for me. Their favorite one was the planter with the strawberries. This didn’t surprise me in the least. The strawberries always go first when ever we have fruit. I’m excited to watch the planters produce some yummy food and the girls are excited to eat it.
