My Granddaughter Gracie and I planted some seeds this week.  The weather was actually pleasant so we headed out to the back yard and got our hands dirty.

She is finally old enough to participate in gardening this year so I am excited to see her reaction to the seedlings sprouting.

 Patience is the first lesson in gardening and 2 1/2 year old children don’t have a lot of it. ~(Heck I don’t have a lot of patience waiting for plants either)~ But that’s what she will learn about while she is waiting for her seedlings to appear.Web IMG_0472

Kids in the garden are so fun.  She was way more interested in digging in the dirt and getting her hands dirty than picking up tiny seeds and trying to place them in the tray.

Sounds like she is a natural to me!
