Today, Buddy and I started his egg carton garden for spring time. This is something that we are going to try to keep up with daily and hopefully in about 3-4 weeks, we'll have nice marigold and asylum blooms and fresh parsley. Buddy has been very interested in our rose bush and comments each day when he spots a new bloom so I thought this would be a hands-on approach to help him understand plants. It also goes along with his Bible verse, 2 Corinthians 5:17, since I think this qualifies as a new creation.
If you are interested in making an easy spring time 'garden', here is how we made our egg carton plants.
1 cardboard egg carton
1 small bag of potting soil
1 or more packages of seeds (Be sure to check plant heights...it would be interesting to have a 5 foot plant growing from an egg carton)
Buddy filled each section of the egg carton with the potting soil. Apparently, he is really excited in this photo!
