Easy Gardening with the Kids

How many times have you thrown the roots of used shallots in the bin?
Well next time, save them for the kids to plant. They grow back again!

my saggy old shallots

look at those beautiful roots

chop chop

get an old pot and some soil
then hand it over to the kids

and who would have thought, the chickens love shallots too!

get the kids to poke a hole

then push shallot root first in the hole

keep poking

a bit of water

wash hands and job done!

something we prepared a little earlier :)
The kids will love watching them grow, cause they planted them! They might even be happy to cut some off when they grown and have some in their mashed potato too!! Well maybe...
