Synopsis

Rocks, Dirt, Worms & Weeds A Fun, User-Friendly, Illustrated Guide to Creating a Vegetable or Flower Garden with Your Kids by Jeff Hutton

Let writer and gardener Jeff Hutton show you and your kids how to create a garden to grow your own food as well as lots of fun flowers to create crafts, butterfly gardens, and more. Learn how to start your seeds indoors and how to best situate your garden, as well as how to prepare soil, plant seeds, or transplant seedlings and how to care for and harvest your garden's bounty. Additionally, there are fun and simple recipes and crafts. Hutton takes the reader through the first steps of gardening in the spring to the final steps in the fall as well as winter fun ideas. This title is full of great projects for parents and kids to do together (as well as many kids can do themselves) with detailed sketches and instructions for making a rain gauge, making stepping stones, decorating egg carton planters, building a simple bird feeder, creating a strawberry pot, planting a sunflower maze, and much more.
