Planting with Kids

For Easter this year both my girls received a geo starter kit a small planter. This weekend was 70, sunny and breezy, it was perfect to plant our seeds.

They got seeds for Cilantro and Parsley.

I placed everything they needed on a cookie tray to try to keep the mess contained. They each took care of their own seeds and pot, for the most part.

Baby Z was beyond thrilled to be part of a project with her sister. They each prepped the soil pellet and added their own seeds. Baby Z was so happy that she tired hugging the biodegradable pot filled with soil. I had to convince her to drop it into her glass pot.

For now the herbs are string in the kitchen window that overlooks the back yard. The girls and I will watch their progress and hopefully grow herbs that we can use in a meal this summer.
