Learning About Plants – An Interview with Judah

I admittedly have a “black thumb.”  I swear I can kill a cactus.  No really.  I have.  {Hangs head in shame}.  I don’t know why, my mom can work magic in a garden.  She can grow anything.  Lucky for me, I live next door so I have been able to enjoy the literal fruits of her labor.  Each year I try to grow a little of my own.

We managed to keep a blueberry bush alive and I’m thrilled to see it has berries on it already for our second year!  I have also managed to grow a little Kale, some lettuces, and a tomato or two thanks to my mom helping me to set up my own container gardens {and reminding me to water it – and even watering it a couple times for me!}

This year I’ve decided to give it another go and am hoping that my three year old will take an interest and will help to remind me to care for these plants.  And, lucky for me, @SeedsofChange is willing to give me a shot.  They sent over a Tomato Garden kit and a few packets of seeds for tomato and summer squash plants.

This kit was made for a person just like me.  It has USDA certified organic seeds {wooohooo!} and it required very little skill or know-how.  It was perfect for a starter kit for me and my little three year old buddy.

The kit included:

2 biodegradable planting pots
Seeds of Change® certified organic tomato seeds
Organic planting mix
100% recyclable windowsill protector tray
step by step instructions

Judah and I spent about 5 to 10 minutes planting our seeds together and talking about what they were, what would happen.  A great little lesson opportunity.  We also discussed how plants are living things and that God made all the living things {a great tie-in to our Bible lesson}.  Here’s a little interview with Judah on his thoughts about planting tomato plants from Seeds of Change.
