My great-niece Anna (not really Anna Banana but that’s what her grandmother calls her) helped her mom, dad and brother Nate, plant and maintain a garden this summer. Not the first time for this family but the first time Anna got to pick her own carrots and help mom make “golden morning” muffins. What fun for a kinder-gardener.
What a gift to give a child – getting involved in gardening. What a great lesson.
“Here’s a packet of seeds. See how small each seed is? This little seed is going to grow up to be a big orange and purple carrot! But first we have to make sure the soil is just right, then we plant the seed just so, water it, keep away the weeds and hope it gets plenty of sunshine. In a few months – voila! Carrots galore.”
How cool is that. What a gift. Teach a child to plant carrot and watch them both grow.
