It was another beautiful weekend, and while we did not get outside as much as I would have liked, I got in a few solid hours of weeding, and this evening we did seed planting with the boys. Elias is very excited to watch the seedlings grow. He was explaining to me that they would not do anything for a few days. I’m glad he knows what to expect.
Here are the boys filling our jiffy pots with soil:
Simon was very excited to “play” with the dirt, and to do the watering. When it came time for actual planting, he had zero interest. At only two, that is ok. I’m glad he was involved at least at the beginning! Here are the boys getting water for the soil, and adding water.
Finally we got to do the actual planting. We planted cucumbers, squash, watermelon, broccoli, african daisies, peppers, tomato, spinach, pumpkin, coleus, and morning glories. Elias and Simon chose all the seeds…I had nothing to do with it. Elias loved poking the little holes and adding the seeds. (Yes that is me wearing pajama pants…it’s Sunday afternoon. Don’t judge.)
