I purchased a few plants and devised a loose plan while Linus was gone. During nap time, I managed to get my first round of plants in the ground and in pots. Since he was still sleeping, I headed back to the nursery for more. (Daddy, of course, works from home so this is a lucky convenience.)
When I returned home, I was just getting started planting when nap time ended. Instead of stopping, I decided to involve Linus in the project. He moved drainage rocks (for the bottom of my pots), transported potting soil, and dumped filler dirt around plants all with the help of his favorite dump truck. Once everything was planted, he assisted in watering with a mini watering can and hauled away all the plastic pots with his dump truck.
It was only after we were through that it occurred to me that it was Earth Day. Getting fifteen ground covers and two shrubs into the ground, potting annuals, and bringing two Boston ferns into our home definitely seemed a more fitting way of celebrating Earth Day than years past.
How about you? Did you do any planting this Earth Day or is your garden already growing?
