I really didn’t know if this was going to work out – this is really my first time gardening in any capacity!  At least by myself… I might have helped my mom with her vegetable garden when I was a teen but I don’t remember much so I don’t think I was a very big part of it.  I really wanted to do this with Emma though and my mom kept encouraging me to get some pots and JUST DO IT.  So finally I did!

Okay, she helped out – remember what Emma got for her birthday from her grandparents?  Pots and seeds!  lol

There’s a way to get things moving.  What am I supposed to say to Emma?  No we can’t use your new birthday presents?  haha

So anyway, we started out small.  We planted snap peas and tomatoes.  I told Emma the importance of watering her plants every day that it doesn’t rain and she did it faithfully.

It’s fascinating watching the many stages of growth!  I love the climbing tendrils and watching the pea pods burst out of the little white flowers.

Emma has been SO patient, I’m surprised she hasn’t been plucking peas left and right, especially after I let her taste one.  Delicious!  But I told her if we wait a little longer the peas will get very big!  So she’s content to wait…

Here she is pretending to eat one, lol.

We are SOOOOO close!  :)

2 Responses to Growing Snap Peas With Preschoolers :)

  • Aww, that’s so much fun:) She’s a real little trooper. I wish my chickens had as much patience, they keep eating my peas.

  • Awww this brought back memories for me of me helping my parents garden when I was five. For as long as I can remember, I’ve tilled the soil, weeded, watered, and harvested everything from strawberries to snap peas to squash and tomatoes, watermelon, even one summer, sunflowers! Now THAT is a fun plant to grow, watching the sunflowers get huge and tall. :) Glad you’re branching out (no pun intended) and doing this with Emma! Believe me, she’ll remember it. :)
