It's bitterly cold and I'm stuck inside. Fortunately I have some beautiful sunny windows to gaze out of all day. These windows are the perfect windows for napping by since the sun comes through and heats you up and puts a magical sleepy spell on you, just watch out for the dreams you may have. The most recurrent dream has been of spring, spring through these windows will be beautiful and green and lush since they overlook the front garden. My little boy will be toddling this spring (if not sooner) and I want to start a tradition of gardening with my kid. I want to learn how to garden more (better) and this is as good a time as any. So this is my dream, a children's garden to create and enjoy together.
In my head it's huge and has places to hide and little rock circles and stones that make a chair that is only big enough for a little kid and tracks for toy cars and trucks and diggers to do their work. In reality, the space is not that big and I have three main ideas. I want to have somewhere for him to hide (maybe a sunflower house), somewhere for him to play (water play, sandbox, bean box) and somewhere for him to watch small things grow into food we can eat.
So now, I need to figure out how I'm going to do all three of those things... ideas? suggestions?
