This is the most growth we have gotten on the #BeanHouse, and it’s riddled with bug holes. Next year we may start with full plants or try some other type of vine.
I was thinking about putting out some cinnamon to keep the rabbits away too. I just saw that coffee grounds keep away snails. Do you have any other tips & tricks that seem to have worked for you in the past?
So, I dig gardening. (Get it?) I have passed that on (so far) to my oldest child, and the little one really likes playing in the dirt. I also enjoy doing things with the kids that are not only fun, but that allow me to sneak in some learning.
Since the bean house was a bit of a bust, maybe this will be a hit.
I encourage you to tackle a project as a family. I encourage you to get kids outdoors. I encourage you to not be afraid to give young kids some tools with a bit of guidance and a lot of supervision. I encourage you to get them into building, gardening, cooking, and the business of imagination.
This year, I had some big help in the garden! These two have been gardening since they could walk, and I think they’re enjoying it and really getting the hang of it.
I call for your comments. Please share your favorite potato recipes (like this or this), your favorite drinking stories, or your favorite pee/Grace Brown/Walmart/Potatoes jokes.
So, on Labor Day this year, we labored. We finally got around to pouring cement for the Backyard Race Car Track, and we started a Fairy Garden.
I have been sitting on the race car track idea for a while, and wondering what to do landscape-wise around the one small tree in the back. We recently got some fairy garden furniture stuff as a gift… so we thought that would be a cool second (3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th?) backyard play-space.
So Ultimate Classic Rock came up with a Zombie Apocalypse 2012 Playlist (in “honor” of the face-eater in Florida). Great idea. OK list. Granted, the name of the site is Ultimate Classic Rock, but let’s add some more zombie songs.
Lots of people looking, no one commenting.
