Tend to the plants

There’s nothing like the promise of a bit of green fingered fun to get my two outside! My two love getting their hands dirty so I try to think up a little task they can do each time we’re out. Today’s job was to tend to the strawberry plants. We were actually digging up the raised border at the allotment, changing the soil over and replanting the healthier strawberry plants so the children had lots to do. They loved their role. Carefully holding the plants on the palms of their hands, choosing the healthiest ones and successfully helping to replant them. The best bit of course was getting to fill the big watering can from the allotment tap. Happy, slow, outdoor fun. Doesn’t get much better on mothering Sunday ! My fave place to be x
