I’m very excited to be working with The Home Depot and receiving products to help start our vegetable and flower gardens this year. This is the third of a series of four sponsored posts written by me on behalf of The Home Depot. All opinions are my own.
If you remember from my last post in this Jump Start Your Garden with Seed Starters series, we had picked out our seeds. Now it was time for the dirty work. The kids were super excited to plant their garden.
We started with the Disney seed starter kits that they had specifically picked out. The instructions were very simple and easy to follow. And actually, the dirty work wasn’t dirty at all!
We each took turns putting seeds into the dirt. There were some very tiny seeds so it was a little difficult for my big fingers to pick out one at a time but not so for their little ones. We talked about how tomato seeds were tiny because the actual fruit was small whereas the bean seeds made bigger plants.
Over the next few days, we made it a point to check on the progress of our tiny seeds. As soon as a little green sprout emerged, the kids got a little bit more excited about our garden. Jack and the Beanstalk has become a new favorite story because of one hearty plant that has emerged and grown like a weed. Both of the kids have asked everyday, “Is it time to plant our garden outside yet?” I think we got them interested! Step one done. Now step two is to get them to eat the veggies!

What’s your favorite veggie or fruit? For me, spinach for veggie and blueberries for fruit. Can’t. Get. Enough.
