Seedy Business

I may or may not have mentioned that I'm planting a little garden this year, and I am SOOOO excited about it!  I'm not really sure why I'm so excited; perhaps it's because it gives me reason to be outside and doing something different?  I've already sown some flower seeds outside in the landscaping, AND I planted some pea and bean seeds a few days ago.  Today, Marin and I planted some seeds to start inside and later transplant outdoors.  I thought it would be good for her as a hands-on activity and to learn a little about plants and .... patience!

Here we are with our egg-cartons!

 Filling them with dirt...
 Poking the holes for the seeds....
 Putting in the seeds....
 Still seeding.....
 And watering the seeds, I found that a sippy cup without the valve was like a tiny watering can, with handles; perfect for 3 year old hands.
 I had Marin plant her own pea seed in a tiny cup, this way she can check up on it every day.
 With a little Owen in the background!
 Cute girl, she did a great job!

These posts are sooooo completely adorable!!!!! It makes me want to plant more stuff, only we're too shady in our yard to spend any more money on seeds/plants. :) My snapdragons are coming back from last year, though, so I'm at least slightly improving!! lol
