Secret Garden and More Pea Planting

Today I had a little helper around the garden. I was looking after the youngest member of our household and we had a relaxing day pottering around. We pressed a few flowers, planted some peas that will go outside in a few weeks and made a ‘secret garden’ which has some cress and some peas and some other bits and bobs for decoration.

It is really important that children are enthused about gardening and growing food from a young age and fortunately we have a very keen helper here. She will be starting at the tiny local primary school in a couple of weeks and she tells me that she will also be going some gardening there and that the school has a plot, which sounds fantastic.

I think she will also enjoy podding the peas once they are ready in the summer – and eating them straight from the garden.
