i have a 4 year old granddaughter that helps me water the new baby plants. she has a watering can and i have to constantly refill it for her. she sometimes even waters me. lol. i love the time i spend with her there. she lives next door and when she sees me outside, here she comes. she also planted the cucumbers and patted the hills down. i think some of those hills will have 20 plants. lol. so what? it is great to pass on our love of gardening to our children and grandchildren, just as my father passed it on to me.

RE: your favorite gardening chore to do with your grandchildren

How wonderful!! My kids (all teenagers now) HATE gardening with me. But when my mom was alive (she died almost four years ago) they loved going over to her house to help her in the garden. By far their favorite chore was PICKING! Especially when they could pop the produce in their mouths. It was so touching that during the year and a half that she was ill, they volunteered to do some of her gardening chores for her.

Keep it up and enjoy her, Cindy!!
