Week 12 is here, we've made it to July!
I also wanted to let you know that we are now 40 participants strong! Can you believe it? That means 40 sets of little kids and big kids are now actively gardening, learning to grow their own food, and exploring the joys of being in the garden...I could not be more thrilled!
This week is a little tutorial...
Yes there is a boot on our back patio table!
Each year we go down to the local farmer's market and I let the kids pick out a couple of flowers to decorate the patio with. This year we went just a tad overboard and completely ran out of pots.
So Sweet Girl and I decided to take one of her old boots (the other had already been thrown out because it was cracked) and plant one of her flowers in it!
Step one...find old boot and take it in your well manicured hand.
Step two...drill hole in bottom of the boot for drainage.
Step three...leave the drill all pink so hubby thinks someone has been drilling into a Pepto-Bismol bottle!
Step four...fill the bottom of the boot with wet potting soil. Forget to take photo of step four!
Step five...compact the squish the roots of your flower to fit into the opening of the boot.
So why can't I do this this to my waist? No matter how hard I try I cannot squeeze it into the opening of those old jeans. Just sayin'
Step six...watch your sweet daughter grab everyone's hand when they come to visit and drag them to show off the old boot with her special most favorite flower planted in it!
Step seven...smile because she thinks your the coolest mama in the world...
which I am!
You all can stop laughing now...
There you have it a recycled boot planter. So what have you all been up to this week?
Come on fess up...
I know you want to!
