Planning for spring with the kids.
We are allready planning for spring here in our S IL home. My oldest daughter is planning veggies mixed with flowers for her garden, and my youngest daughter is planning a flower garden with flowrs that spell out her name. She would like several differnt flowers in her favorite colors for each letter. So she has been searching the seed catalogs for a flower that starts with her letters, then looking for it in her colors. I personally cannot wait to see her purple, pink, white flower garden. She understood quite quickly about staggering the sizes, and has had great fun planning for tall, medium and small plants. She is having a bit more trouble with understanding the flowering times.
My oldest wants to plant it all, she is so like me in this way. She wants huge drifts, lots of colors, and flowers that bloom non stop. She has choosen at least five different cukes, and thinks she should get more room for squash.
I would love to see more people posting about how their children are planning. This forum is one of my favorites, but seems to not get alot of traffic. Becky
