A few weeks ago I had an idea for the kids to grow their own edible seed tray garden. I bought 5 different types of quick growing seeds and thought we could use stones, shells, twigs and some of our toys to create the gardens.
Recent circumstances have meant we didn’t really do what I initially intended, but the seeds grew well and yesterday we finally got round to eating some of our “grass”; that being all we did with the gardens in the end!
We planted, grew and ate micro-brocolli and micro-rocket, alfalfa, cress and mustard. The boys tried a little bit of everything but I can’t say they were big fans of their greens. Jasmine, on the other hand, loved it all and spent most of the afternoon picking bits from her garden to eat!As well as enjoying our home grown greens yesterday, we finally dug out the kids mud area. This is eventually going to have their Mud Kitchen next to it (when i finally finish weather-proofing it that is)The kids can’t wait to get into the garden again and play in their very own bit of mud! I have made sure there are a lot of worms in there for them to find!
