Gardener Gracie's Nursery: #KidsGrowWild challenge22:18:00
Me and Gracie experimented a few weeks ago with growing cress. I know we couldn't have picked a more boring looking plant but we chose cress as it has quick results and we couldn't have chose an easier plant to demonstrate how to care for plants. Gracie loved checking on her cress and reminding me to water it. Well after this I saw the Money Supermarket #KidsGrowWild challenge over on Twitter and thought it would be great to get involved.
Money Supermarket sent us out a kids gardening kit to take part in the challenge. The kit included bag, gloves, watering can, two handheld tools and some seeds. As we are moving soon I popped to Ikea and bought some lovely bright coloured plant pots so we can take them with us when we go. Now we had everything ready and waiting for us to get outside and start growing! Unfortunately the weather had other ideas and it has rained almost every day since.
I can't wait to see how they turn out and can't believe we hadn't done anything like this sooner, it was so much fun! We really enjoyed this challenge and it's given me the motivation to start growing my own fruit and veg (or try) so as soon as we move I'll be buying a little greenhouse and will have Gracie as my little helper.
