We have been working very hard at reclaiming our poor garden.
That means, me, on all fours, digging and pulling.
And Tiger, being a busybody, not helping at all.
Good news is, we are almost done.
Killing weed is a crazy, crazy idea without using chemical.
Being an OCD has certain benefits, you know.
I Googled and some experts suggested using sugar.
My hands are smarting like mad and the nails are goners
my little helper is now dirt-friendly.
Definitely worth it just to watch him touch soil, sit on grass, basically just
getting in touch with nature.
To supplement his latest interest, I used
Growing a Bean Plant from Sparklebox
I like the simple graphics and easy instructions
Getting acquainted with the prepared materials
I told Tiger, We must follow some steps to plant a tree.
He replied, Like Oso? Three steps?
and started yelling on top of his lungs
Twee little steps, that's all you need...twee little steps...
Step 1: Fill the pot half-full with soil
I didn't have beans that are big enough.
So, I used some of Grandma's ermm, kuaci.
After a while, he asked, Where tree?
I considered my words carefully before replying,
Remember The Carrot Seed?
What did the boy do?
Nods head and smile
Did a jolly dance, clicking my heels in the air.
Gotta love the classics
See my almost weed-free grass?
I am so happy. *insert blissful look*
Ooooh, must remember to 'insert' a plant next week.
