The garden project

Day 17 of #65daysofsummer

Today we started our project to work our way round the garden over the summer, tidying small sections as we go.

We began with the small bed by the kitchen, weeding, clearing pine needles and leaves, litter picking and planting some bulbs. The children love getting their gardening gloves on, digging in the soil and being given various jobs to do.

We’ll take it slowly, doing just a small part at a time to keep them interested and will plant some new plants as we go. I’ve been meaning to sort a wee pond for a couple of years too so hope to get that done this year as well.

Have you got a patch of garden, a trough or pot you could let the children get creative in?
