My boys have thrown together a veggie patch and they love watching it grow… We had a patch of dirt on the dead-side of our house and it was the perfect spot for a vegetable garden. We weren’t sure how they’d go around there, but they have really taken to it! We’ve put in strawberries, tomatoes, carrots, lettuce, zucchini, silverbeet, pumpkin and watermelon…
They lovingly head out there after school every day to water them and talk about what’s grown. The tomatoes are going great guns!
We couldn’t find any watermelon punnets anywhere in Wagga would you believe so we decided to through in a few seeds and already they are taking off!
I can’t wait to pick a few lettuce leaves. I buy lettuce all the time and it ends up such a waste because we don’t eat the huge packets they come in. I just want to be able to pick a few here and there. Perfect!
Look, a couple of strawberries… My littlest kid is most happy because strawberries are his favourite.
We’re always looking to give the kids something to do outside and a veggie patch is perfect for their ages.
