My little helper

April 9th, 2007 by Karsten

samwatering2.jpgLast weekend I decided to start introducing my little 3-year old to the allotmenteer lifestyle, and brought him for an afternoon to my plot.

We had a great time! It’s funny just to see him toddle around, doing his own thing, and enjoying himself. I would like him to “take ownership” of something on the plot this year - and maybe make a tradition out of it - so before going to th plot we went to a garden center and bought him a few packs of sunflower seeds.

Before I knew it we had enough seeds to plant well over 100 plants - but I think I might just let him - for the fun of it more than anything! I won’t be able to use the full plot anyway :-) .

The laugh of the day I had when he came up to me and asked me for a seed. I gave him one! He went somewhere on the plot and dug it in with his little trowel, came back up to me saying: “Daddy! It hasn’t growed yet!” You’ve got to love them!
