More often than not, Emmy joins me when I am working in the gardens.
At 20 months old, she is pretty good about not being overly destructive, but I do have to occasionally overlook a trampled onion or a lettuce bunch being pulled out instead of a weed.
One part of helping that she seems to enjoy most is planting. (Note: This only works with larger seeds and should not be done with little ones that are still putting things in their mouths that they shouldn't be.)
For example, I will hand her one bean at a time and she will put it right in the little hole I have made with my finger.
Then when the row is complete, we have a foot stomping time. I love watching her little feet as she jumps up and down over where we have just planted.
Do you work with your children in the garden?
