A Little Bit of Earth

L packed her planter box

Twice a year my granddaughters E L K get to plant their own little garden in a garden box.  In the fall they do pansies that winter over and do great in the spring.  

The droopy African Marigolds are fine now

When they come in the summer they get to choose their own plants. They get to learn about proper planting and watering (at least that's the general idea). 

K likes to supervise, doesn't like dirt on her hands.

We've had quite an assortment over the last few years - tomatoes, zucchini, lots of pinks and reds.  I send them pictures to update them on the progress of their gardens.  

E went with a minimalist look with lots of textures.
L's African Marigold is fine now, just needed water and good soil.
K is quite proud of all 'her' work.
