Children's Garden

With February past us, I’m eager to get my hands in the dirt! But, I’ll have to entertain myself with making plans for the garden, until it’s the right time for planting. This year we’re adding a Children’s Garden for our son, Q, who is three. It will have fun items, such as Baby Boo and Jack-be-little pumpkins, an assortment of Sunflowers in varying heights, Easter Egg radishes (won’t the color be fun?), of course strawberries, and my favorite Sungold cherry tomatoes (they are so sweet it’s like eating candy!).

I’ve made a TeePee out of bamboo and will train the pumpkins to vine up it. But other than that, I’m at a loss for other fun structures to include.

Do you have a Children’s Garden? What structures do you have for your child’s entertainment? I'd love to see pictures for inspiration!

Head over to The Self Sufficient Home Acre and join the fun!

  1. How fun! This sounds like a blast. I love radishes but have never heard of Easter Egg radishes. I'll have to check them out! I recently found watermelon radishes and I am enamored :)

    1. Watermelon radishes, I've heard of them and always wanted to try them because of the name. Maybe next year I'll have to add them to the mix!

  2. So much fun :) Found you on Farmgirl Friday and I would love to have you share this on The Creative HomeAcre Hop today!
