Introducing John’s tuin (garden). I’m forever chasing him out of the main gardens as he tends to stand on plants so I though we’d make a new garden together so he could have his own plants to look after and eat. Mum and John bought this cute purple flower for his garden. He loved getting his hands dirty and putting his own seeds in. We planted snap peas, rainbow carrots, beetroot and oregano in his little garden. John was such a pro at plating down the plant and pushing his little finger in the potting mix then popping seeds in. I guess he’s seen me do it his whole life. I love that he’s getting involved.
John loves watering the garden and was so proud watering his own garden.
We made a spoon label for his tuin. I only had a sledge hammer as I couldn’t find a smaller one and so my label is not as good as it could be.
Here we have John’s tuin. So cute.
John loves it. He’ll love it even more once things start growing.
I’m super glad we made this together. John was so cute and excited about having his own tuin. Do your kids have gardens? What do they like to grow?
