Gardening is such a fun experience for kids! There are so many different life skills that children can learn while planting a garden, watching it grow and then harvesting it! As a child, I remember planting a garden with my Dad and it brings such fond memories. I even remember planting our strawberry patch, which was my favorite!
However, I have a small problem. I DON’T have a green thumb. I am not sure what happened exactly, but the gardening gene didn’t get passed down to me. In the past, I would try to grow something simple like basil and it always died. People would say, “Basil is easy to grow. Just water it, Annie!” I do. I don’t know if I over-water it or under-water it. Plants and I just don’t get along, until the Earthbox!
First, let me introduce my gardening helpers. Don’t they look cute? I have to admit, they totally abandoned me when it came time to planting. I think it had something to do with the dirt.
Earthbox #1 We have two tomato plants, cherry and heirloom. I still need to put a tomato cage around tomato plants.
