We spent a lovely afternoon getting everything ready and then planting all the herbs, strawberries, tomatoes and flowers, it was a lot of fun to do it all together. Siobhan our teenage daughter was a little less enthusiastic, she wanted to help and loves to get messy, but finds sticking to a task really tricky and so kept flitting off and coming back for a while. She is fantastic at remembering to water the plants in the evenings, and hasn’t forgotten once to check the plants.
The only problem now is to keep the pests off, there are loads of slugs and snails around, and I remember my granny using crushed egg shells to ward them off, so I’m going to give it a try. If any gardeners out there have any tips I would be most grateful, so I can keep our little garden from being eaten up by the pests.
The girls enjoyed helping put our little herb bed together and that was the aim, to get them involved and interested, so it has been a success in my eyes. I don’t know how long it will remain looking beautiful, we shall all do our bit to keep it weed free and watered, and hopefully free of little pests.
