Similar to my mom’s attempt to get me interested in sewing, my mom also tried to get me on the gardening bandwagon as evidenced here:
While her attempts were futile, I have a black thumb and kill any plant that comes home with me, maybe the boys will be different!
So I suppose it is my motherly duty to educate my boys on how to properly plant things and Carver just loves watering my flowers so I had an awesome idea when we were at The House of Flowers in New Hampton: using a dump truck as a planter!
Carver has a billion dump trucks, I’ll bet he could spare one. Craig made a specifically cut piece of wood to fit in the back to make it a planter.
Carver did EVERYTHING. He put the dirt in the dump truck, Choose which flowers went where, I even let him pop the flowers out of their planter, dig the hole, and plant the flowers. I helped him cover them back up with dirt.
I told him it was important to water the flowers as soon as they are replanted. I think our biggest challenge with this experiment will be GANNON not de-planting Carver’s flowers.
I did end up getting some flowers this year – mostly pre planted because that’s how I roll and hopefully now that Carver has flowers to water, he can help me to remember to take care of mine! I’ll do a full “garden” tour later next week to show you my choices!
Here’s the finished project! He was so proud and wanted to show it off to Grandma Joey! The wheels still work so he is still tempted to “play” with the dump truck but I told him it is probably best for the flowers to stay in one place for now.
