I have made quite a few dinners recently that required chives and spring onions and have found them quite expensive to buy at the shops. As they seem to be a regular on my shopping list I thought I will try to grow my own.
On the weekend I made a trip to Bunnings (love love Bunnings) and purchased 2 gorgeous pots and some seedlings to start my own crop. I have tried a vege garden in the past, but sadly all that seemed to survive was the parsley.
I gave the pots and seedlings to my kid and they planted them up for me, they love gardening. Herbs are really easy to grow, which makes for a great activity for the kids. My kids love the responsibility of watering them each day.
Have you got a little vege patch or pots of herbs? This would be a great weekend activity for the kids.
Meet my kiddies below the twins – DD#1 & DS (excuse DS he has no idea how to smile for the camera) and little DD#2:
