KinderGARDENS G is for Gross

I have girls and I am amazed that girls can be gross. These are mud pies made out of garden soil.

The composter is dirt in progress. Anna is willing to water it if she gets the hose.

An interesting mold that just shows up in the garden and then ...

the next day looks like this.

KinderGARDENS F is for Flowers

Can you see the lightening bug?

We ordered the Happy Chicken Garden for a dead space in our front yard. It is a place where last year we tossed hostas. We don't have chickens, we are raising kids instead.

This spring we regraded the land to get the water away from the house and put in the seeds.

Once we noticed it was a major path for kids we made stepping stones. Now Anna and Lilly love to play in it. Anna races her friends. Lilly eats the dirt and likes to sit on the stone with her name on it.

KinderGARDENS E is for Eating

We were having noodles for lunch and Anna had a great idea. She came back with some scapes and a few basil leaves. I cut them up and she sprinkled them. We had a good meal from our garden.
