  • Rachel Hall

    Ezra’s face when you are explaining that you have to pull(kill) up some plants so the rest will thrive… I feel his pain. Gardening will teach great life lessons. Wheat from chaff territory… I love your gentle explanation of why you have to do what you have to do.

    I'm 33 weeks pregnant with my first, I cannot wait to share my love of gardening with my kiddo <3 Thank you so much for this video. I'm so excited. Your kids' garden is absolutely beautiful, I'm so inspired.

    Excellent advice and suggestions. I have a brother and a sister. All of us were welcome in my parents garden. I don't remember if we were ever told we had to do any work, but I can remember helping to pull weeds at 3 or 4 years old. When we moved to California when I was almost 5 we didn't garden for a few years, until we bought a house with a big yard. I remember watching my father till, break open, and spread, bags of peat moss and manure. Sprinkle on fertilizer and create rows and hills. Even before a single plant or seed went in, I was hooked. My brother and sister watched the tilling, and maybe some of the other stuff, but it wasn't "their thing". I think that my father gardened because his father farmed… And my mother loved gardening. She loved growing anything, like I do. She didn't let me do a lot in the garden, but she taught me some, and I watched.

    Rather then sacrificing and killing plants could you take them up and repot elsewhere? I love your gentle kind instruction to your beautiful children!
