She loves to garden at my house and seems to find it empowering to trim the suckers off the photinia. However, I didn’t get any feedback about the book.
Earlier this year I was surprised to find that she had read the book from cover to cover and had been doing the seasonal activities from it all along.
We can’t be together or garden for a while so I send pictures to her parents to share with her.
She has enjoyed following the progress of this “bookshelf garden” that I keep in a sunny window. The leftovers of green onions, carrots, and radishes were planted and are now growing again.
I look forward to future in-person gardening projects with my grandaughter but until then I am thankful for this way of continuing our shared love of growing plants. This project has been a helpful tool for teaching propagation, the importance of recycling, and the joy of gardening.
Here is a link describing how children can make their own indoor edible gardens.
