Spring Break is over and it is back to our regular scheduled routine. We finished our break with an Earth Day bang of sorts. On Saturday is rained all day long, it was chilly out and the day was better suited for Netflix, snacks and a blanket. Due to all of the rain, LittleCuteLips and Babe didn’t get to work on their gardening project as planned. Did you contribute to the Earth, for Earth day?
So they had to improvise, they took their gardening project to the garage. My girl has quite the green thumb and after success with last years garden of tomatoes and green peppers she was looking forward to growing, even more, things this year. I can’t wait to see what she decides to grow in our garden this year. The only thing I’m worried about is that it could attract unwanted pests to our garden, and maybe even into our house. I will have to make sure that I do a lot of research on sites like https://www.pestcontrolexperts.com/ so that I know what I have to do in case a problem like this arises. I’m trying everything I can do to prevent anything happening to her plants, so I’ve even arranged for a companies to come round and help get everything on my house up to scratch. So I’m getting the gutters cleared out using a company like Clean Pro Gutter Cleaning Grand Rapids MI to help do this, as I’ve heard if they’re leaking a little too much this can cause soil erosion for what’s underneath which could ruin the plants, and although they’re indoors at the moment I will be putting them outside the front door so hence why I need to take this step. I don’t want anything to ruin my daughter’s experience of growing her own plants and vegetables so I’m willing to do anything to make sure nothing affects it. For now, all of our focus is on this garden project.
LittleCuteLips came home with wildflower seeds at Idealseed and was really excited to plant them. Babe picked up some soil and got her a pot and she was responsible for taking care of it. I found this cute watering can at Target. I snapped this picture of her taking care of her flowers a few weeks ago. She is so attentive to whatever she is growing, more so than she is with anything else.
Last month Cheerios posted about their #BringBackTheBees campaign on Facebook and I had to get in on it.
When you went to the website they gave you a wealth of information surrounding the campaign. Ultimately the bees were in danger and they wanted to give our 100 million seeds for people to plant. That was it, no strings attached. I completed the form in LittleCuteLips name, kids love to get mail. As you can see they exceeded the campaign and gave out 1.5 billion seeds, I’m happy to say we are one in that number.
As promised weeks later her seeds arrived in the mail. She had no idea they were on the way so she was really excited to open up the package.
LittleCuteLips and Babe had two projects happening simultaneously. First, her marigolds had grown so much they needed to be transplanted into a bigger pot. Secondly, she needed to plant her wildflower seeds.
Due to the rain, they did this in the garage. As you can see they already transplanted her flowers, you can see how much they grew in just a couple of weeks. She made rows in the soil and planted her seeds.
Her seeds are planted with the help of Dad (Babe) and they covered them with soil.
Giving them a water bath.
Planting is complete, the seeds have been watered and now they are taking in the sun.
We can’t wait to watch them grow, stay tune…
