Inspiration Comes in the Smallest Packages

May 01, 2012

A few packages of seeds have been an inspiration for a family project. Over the past couple of years, we have filled our garden with rows and rows of sweet corn, but this year my son and I are branching out.

My son loves to play in the dirt, and he has the natural gift of a green thumb. So this year, I suggested we add more vegetables to the garden portfolio.

Planting vegetables, whether in the backyard or containers on the windownsill, can be an educational experience for kids and an inexpensive way to show kids how food grows.


In March, we started our tomato and pepper plants.


In about a week, with water, nutrients and sunshine through the window, the seedlings have emerged.

Soon my son and I will plant them in the garden alongside the carrots, radishes and first rows of sweet corn he already planted with his dad.

Meanwhile, we are quite excited that our next garden project will involve a special package delivered by the UPS man. Stay tuned for when we move to the field to plant these seeds.
