Jump Start Your Garden with Seed Starters {Part 3}

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.

  1. I love when blueberries come into season! There is a great place to pick just down the road from us – $5 a gallon! We go several times and stock up our freezer. Plus, it’s a great activity for my oldest, although she usually ends up eating more than she puts in the bucket.

    Thanks for sharing your pics. Planting starter seeds looks like a fun family activity, plus a good way to talk about healthy eating with little ones.

    1. I’m anxiously counting the days down till blueberry season is here. We’ve got a secret spot that is on top of one of our favorite hikes. Wild blueberries are sooooo good! I think we eat more than we pick!

    1. Internet games have gained much popularity now
      a day due to the wide access to play and download this from all online portals.
      Keeping the fun going with 4 quick party games for adults can be the difference between a great party
      and one that’s just OK. There are, though, some signs that a parent should look for when trying to make a determination as to whether the time that his or her kid is spending on video games
      is too much.

  2. Yay for getting kids into gardening! What a great project with your kids. I wish I could pick my favorite vegetables and fruits, but there are just way too many. Anything fresh where I know where it was from in the summer is great for me 🙂

  3. We got the princess ones and Em loved them!!! She was like a kid in a candy store picking out seeds! We are headed back next week to pick out some veggies to start so we can plant them in Bumpa’s garden!!

  4. I love this idea! How cute! I might make my way over to Home Depot this weekend because I’ve really been wanting to try and grow some tomatoes or peas ourselves on the deck – just have to figure out a way to place them so the deer don’t eat them. Or so I don’t kill them… I seem to be really good at getting tomatoes to sprout but then they just seem to die off in my presence… :/

  5. Cute idea! I need to do this with my kids – fun inexpensive project. I have a garden (actually 3 but who’s counting) but my dad is in charge of buying the plants from his friend that grow them in green houses during winter month. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can work on my garden! I love cucumbers, spinach, and carrots – pretty much all fruit. I also love berries too.

  6. Favorite fruit is a 3 way tie (blackberries, raspberries and bananas), and I often find myself adding all 3 to things.

    Favorite veggie is spinach, I love that you can use it a million ways and it’s so healthy!

  7. When it comes to companies, it is more favorable to
    invest in ones that have better returns than management.
    The management of a company is subject to change more quickly than its economic nature.
    Companies that result in high returns in the market will usually stay this way for a while,
    meaning better opportunities for you.
