Thankfully one of my sisters has gained some gardening experience over the last few years so I have appointed her my gardening guru!
We recently moved to a new house and
one of my favourite things about it is the garden - lots of open playing space but also a good part for growing!
I thought that I would share my gardening journey with you, in the hope that you would be inspired and encouraged to have a go yourself!
Even just getting a few pots and growing some beans - or grow bags and potatoes (seriously soooo easy) it is so rewarding!
Our journey started last Sunday, we had some family round, donned spades and gloves and started clearing away the weeds*
*definition of a weed - anything you do not want in your garden!!
Good quality tools are recommended and, on the advice of my sister I invested in a spear and Jackson digging spade - at £25
it wasn't exactly cheap but it came with a 15 year guarantee so I am thinking long term, plus you could feel the difference when digging - it really did make the job easier and more of a pleasure.
After being inspired on Saturday at the Learn Free home educating conference I incorporated some nature study, where we looked up some of the flowers names, studied worms and planted some cress for the windowsill!
