Starting a Spring Garden {Wordless Wednesday with Linky}

Last night my daughter and her Girl Guides troop went to Home Depot. Their fun mission? To make planters and plant seeds for a spring garden. I can’t wait to watch these flowers grow!

One of the 954 reasons why I love Spring and Summer so much is because my daughter inherited my love for gardening. I cannot wait to do this together soon! C’mon Spring, hurry up!

  1. It sure feels like Spring here today in Manitoba! They are expecting it to reach 24 degrees by the weekend YAY!!! I love planting and gardening too. Your daughter is gorgeous Tammi!

    1. wow – that’s warm!
      I don’t think it’s supposed to get that nice here, we’ll stick to indoor planting for now.

  2. Aww πŸ™‚ I grew up watching (and helping) my folks with their flower/vegetable gardens and still love the activity as an adult.

    Looking forward to seeing photos are you and your gals garden grows!

  3. That’s about the only way we can start a garden around here, eh, Tammi? INSIDE in planters! LOL! Guides is SO fun at all levels. So glad she’s getting to do these fun things!

    1. Isn’t that the truth, so sick of indoors!
      And yes, guides was the best parenting decision, they do so much for these girls!

  4. That’s great. So fun to share activities with kids. I have been thinking about a growing a garden too. I’m not sure how much help my boys would be though! πŸ™‚

    1. Oh yes, they get badges! Which reminds me, I haven’t put any on her new sash yet… better get on that before the next event!

  5. That is awesome! My kids love gardening and they got that from their dad πŸ™‚ I get more into it every year, I just never grew anything before πŸ™‚

    1. Same here Annie, I’m getting more into it each year. I have a long way to come though!

    1. I was never in Brownies myself, but now I really wish I had been!
      Have a great week, Kris!

    1. She was so excited there were 10 trial pics before this, all too blurry,
      “Please stand still!” lol

  6. I need to learn how to garden. I’m going to start small this year and start with an indoor herb garden. It would be wonderful to have fresh basil!

  7. I had back surgery in 2006 & I haven’t had a vegetable garden since, but this year I’m going for it. I found a way I can do it on my porch in plastic containers. woo hoo Come on Spring. I love fresh veggies. woo hoo

  8. I can’t believe it’s flower planting time so soon! This winter has been very short and kind to us!

    1. I lean toward that side too, but I still have fun trying. I guess practice will hopefully make perfect one day!

  10. I wish spring would come by really quick! Your daughter is so cute! ItΒ΄s always fun when kids like to help in the garden.

  11. It seemed like Spring had sprung here in the UK this past couple of weeks but yesterday and today are really miserable. Luckily we have already planted our seeds indoors ready for some protected growth before being transferred to the garden!

  12. awww wicked cute πŸ™‚
    i can’t wait for the flowers to grow either!
    Happy WW!


  13. Has she had her first cherry tomato plant yet. They are so easy to grow and you can put them in a big flower pot. No need for a big garden. πŸ™‚ Kids love to eat the tiny tomatoes.

    1. You know, Josee, I have tied that many times. Easy, I hear, but I always manage to kill tomato plants?! I have no idea how I manage to do that….

  14. Yay for gardening! We started some seeds indoors under a grow light and have already moved some outside. I have cucumbers, tomatoes and zucchini that’s roaring to get outside but I should really wait a bit longer in case of frost.

  15. I’m hoping this year that we put in a garden. I think we’ll just buy the seeds and plant them at my in-laws place since their field is all prepped for gardening, and then tend to it there. We don’t really have the room or right soil type for gardening here. Although I have seen all sorts of neat container type gardening on pinterest. Might have to try a few of those ideas. πŸ™‚

  16. Fun! My husband is the gardener in our family and our little one just helped plant her own tiny pot of seeds. She loves to help out.

  17. What an excellent project for the kids! I also can’t wait to start my gardening projects…just waiting on spring! Happy WW!

  18. The weather today and yesterday here in Victoria has lost its mind lol We’ve had snow, rain, winds over 100km/hr and beautiful sunshine!

  19. Oh, you have the cutest little Brownie πŸ™‚ Good luck with the garden, I know my girls are looking forward to planting flowers in their OWN personal planters they received as part of a Christmas gift πŸ™‚

  21. You should post photos of the progression. Would love to see your little garden! Maybe you could give some pointers too. I’m terrible with gardening but I’d love to grow some low maintenance flowers and even my own vegetables. πŸ™‚
