Spring has finally sprung here and the frost have (probably!) passed so Miss L and I got out this weekend and did some ‘small’ gardening. Miss L wanted to grow her own flowers this year, some strawberries and some potato’s.
You don’t need much to do this and it’s pretty inexpensive. The ingredients were
1 Hanging Basket
2 Bags of soil
2 Potato Sacks
1 Packet of Miss L Bulbs
1 Packet of Dahlias
1 Packer of Seed Potatos
3 Strawberry Plants
First up we filled the hanging basket with soil and added the strawberry plants, which means we’ll see them as we come into the house and Betty can’t destroy them – she’s big on strawberries!
Then we planted up the tub with Miss L Bulbs and Dahlia’s, luckily there’s also a Peony already in there so she’ll see instant results with that in a couple of weeks
And then onto the potato’s, I’m not sure the pink dress will be the same!
They’re all sprouting now as we’ve had so much sunshine and it’s fun watering them after school. Hopefully we’ll see the fruits of our labour in a few weeks, I know Miss L’s watching those strawberries!
