"Gardening"


At the end of Friday, Margot helped me tend the veggie garden. She spent at least 5 minutes diligently bending down and removing things from this one patch of the garden. It was helpful when she took out the first few leaves from nearby maple tree, but she didn't stop there. Apparently large clumps of dirt, small pieces of rock, and everything else that makes up dirt all needed to be taken out. Luckily, she did the entire removal process (bend down over the garden, select offending object, stand up, bend down outside of the garden, place offending object on the grass) for each individual thing that she found, so all of her hard work didn't result in any actual damage.

I would say that you should get right on that and teach her about weeds. Perhaps it won't take at first, but maybe it will before she reaches the age where she doesn't want to do it anymore.

I hope I can look forward to similar behavior. Right now Aine just eats dirt, twigs, rocks...
