  1. I really dont have a garden but a small terrace and have few plants in there. the eggplant is so giving last spring, summer. If only I have a place to plant I would cuz you are so spot on on the resons why we need to plant for food =) #TheOrdinaryMoments

  2. Hello, I love growing my own fruit and veg, it’s so much more tastier too isn’t it. I actually wrote a post about this quite recently http://ourseasidebaby.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/home-grown-fruit-and-veg.html Didn’t do too much this year but am quite excited about getting into it again next year – hoping toddler will ‘help’ too. Great photos, kids look like they’re having a lot of fun 🙂 #TheOrdinaryMoments

    That quote at the end is beautiful and so right. It is such an important job to teach our little ones about the world we live in. Your garden sounds wonderful and I would love to be able to grow some of our fruit and veg- my eldest has a little veg patch at my Dads and she loves to go round and look at her creations when we visit.

    Your garden is wonderful! My mum is an avid gardener and grows her own vegetables and herbs. I love it when she gives me fresh silverbeet or broad beans or even coriander! Unfortunately I didn’t inherit a green thumb and everything I have attempted to grow either dies or is eaten by the dog. However your post has inspired me to try growing some fresh herbs with my toddler son. I’ll start small and take it from there. Thanks for the inspiration. Great post. #letkidsbekids

    • Thank you so much! I actually don’t really have a green thumb either, but we have been gardening for four years now. Our first garden did not do so well, but every year we learn more and it gets better and better! I am so happy you have decided to grow some herbs with your son. Our children have always loved smelling and tasting the leaves of herbs.

    Love this. Given me inspiration to find my never used green thumb. Starting out with herbs and I’ll get my son to help!

  6. Gorgeous garden! We moved earlier this year and my Mum, and gardener Ian have created such a wonderful garden for the kids with herb sections and fruit and veg-such important lessons for the kids to grow, pick and eat what they produce! Thanks for linking up to #brilliantblogposts

    Its wonderful growing and nurturing your own plants, veg and food. A great lesson for children and a lovely thing to do together. I’d love to grow more in our garden.

    I love having a garden! Sadly we end up moving right before we harvest. But the beginning is fun and I love feeling the fresh earth beneath my feet. I have a boy who eats tomatoes like crazy! We plant extra plants because of him… just so we can get a few

    Gardening is a fantastic family activity that provides abounding blessings because of it, there are really no negatives. Now is the time to get your seed catalogs out and start looking! Do you have a favorite? I like Baker Creek Heirloom seeds and one of my favorite seeds to start early are leeks so I can get them in the garden and enjoy them early! They make the most amazing base for soups!

    Blessings from one homeschooling garden lover to another!

    I love seeing people doing what they can where they are and growing their own food. It is the best way to raise a family in my opinion. 🙂 Thanks for sharing at the Homestead Blog Hop!

    I miss our old house. We had a garden there. I would love to have another one someday.

  12. This is wonderful!

    We live in a townhouse and we have a decent sized fenced yard. A couple years I put in a vegetable garden and I love it! My children love it too.

    Thanks for sharing and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop.

    Wishing you a lovely day.
