There is something extra special about gardening with little people. It brings me great joy to see my 18 month old daughter enjoying herself in the garden.
During the week I brought Miss C some of her own gardening tools so she doesn't nick mine all the time. I also got her a purple bucket (which I will have to decorate) for her to carry her tools in.
Yesterday she helped me plant some cucumbers, courgettes, gherkin and egg plant. We also planted a giant pumpkin. Our local garden centre runs a competition to see who can grow the biggest. Fingers crossed for ours. I will take regular photos (as long as the plant survives LOL) of Cara and her plant growing together.
