planting with the kids

I love spring (ok summer by the time Chicago warms up) and planting with the kids.  Here are a few tips:

1. Take the kids with you to pick the flowers to get them excited about it

2. Have the kids help you pick the veggies that they like or might try (snack cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and mint are winners for us)

3. Get plastic shovels/buckets for the kids to help you (trucks are good scoopers too)

4. Plant the day after some rain so the worms are plentiful (my boys think the worms are the best part)
