My daughter made this cute little planter box for me at Brownies this spring. We planted some tomatos and peppers into the little pots a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday, they needed re-planting to bigger pots, so we seeded more new ones again. This time it was more tomatos, and some basil too. I hope this will be a fun project to do together this spring/summer. It's a small start, but in gardening, every little bit at the beginning can flourish in many meals full of vegetables later! I think it's a good lesson.
We signed up as a "dig-deeper" family with http://diginmanitoba.com/, and are really looking forward to our first workshop, which focuses on starting seeds.
