Gardening with Kids

So no pictures of the garden at the moment, but gardening with a 2 and 3 year old has been interesting. We almost have everything in but let's just say the lettuce and carrots seeds... Well more of them ended up on my kids than actually in the garden.
Watering is a favorite past time, but that results in mud and as you can see there is hardly a clean spot on Daniel's pants. Our new routine is dress for early spring in the morning and go work in the garden or go to the park then come home for lunch and baths as they are frequently filthy, then we dress for summer in the afternoon. Some days we have to give them a bath at night as well if we have spent any time outside. In spite of driving me absolutely crazy as they get into other people's garden's, walk on our plants and etc. We are having fun. Today I picked our first strawberry and I did not share. :-) I'd forgotten how good homegrown strawberries are and how store bought ones are so tasteless by comparison.
