Children’s Garden Tips

September 26, 2010

Throw a party.

Invite their friends,


especially the colorful friends.


Get down on their level and see what they see.


Remember to plant bite size morsels.

Remember to plant flowers for picking,


lots of flowers for picking.

Let them help with the harvest,

dried beans

and let them help cook their harvest.

Most of all, let them have fun in the garden.


I’ve missed the last few weeks, since the garden fairy started preschool and I started volunteering. This has been loads of fun and I’m going to miss it through the long, cold winter. I’m looking forward to catching up on all the kinderGARDEN posts while planning next year’s garden. Many thanks to Kim, at the inadvertent farmer, for a wonderful summer adventure.


The Garden Fairy Chronicles has been my contribution to the kinderGARDENS project. The goal was to get more kids out into the garden. The links for the final week can be found here, at the inadvertent farmer, or you can click the button below for all the details. Links to the Garden Fairy Chronicles can be found here.

    Yes, that dragon fly shot is amazing and I love that your little one is in the kitchen cooking with you. Great recap!

    Both my four-year-old and her visiting friend gasped with delight at your dragonfly photo! 🙂

    Great advice! I like the “bite sized morsels” part!
    The “let them help cook” photo shows how carefully she is doing her job! So cute!
