My daughter and I have gardened together since the time she started toddling. While we've graduated from a tiny, beach-sized watering can to a desire to play with all of mom's gardening equipment, it's been an interesting journey to share.
Imagine giving her her own garden. Yet I'm crazy enough to do just that. Tucked in her Easter basket this year will be her very own seeds to do damage with.
Want to let your little one do the same? (Or is your inner child tempted?) Next week, I'm giving away a Fairy Garden Kit from Nature's Crossroads, a Bloomington, Ind.-based seed company.
The garden kit, which can cover a 4' x 4' garden space, contains "fairy seed mix" (clover, chamomile, bachelor's button, sweet pea, and cosmos), toy fairy, baubles, and instructions.
To enter, tell me your favorite way you've gotten a little one interested in nature, the environment or gardening. (If you don't have a little one, that's OK, just share your favorite gardening tip for the group!)
You can get a second entry by subscribing to my RSS feed.
Contest ends March 12 at midnight.
