GROWING TOGETHER

It is truly better together!


Like many parents, we love our children. It's a blessing to be able to spend so much time with them and to have them observe and help. Our Little-Peppers are truly incredibly helpful, and when they pitch in, things take a fraction of the time. This is especially beneficial when it comes to all of the gardening work and food production.

SWEET PEPPER IN THE GARDEN

It's cool when children want to hang out with their parents and help them. Usually, it's not too long after I start a project that little eyes begin to watch, and then the children ask to help. While I was planting seeds recently, Sweet-Pepper came along to help.

The process of planting seeds is simple enough, and with a little instruction children can easily help. Sweet-Pepper is only four at the moment, but she's got a couple of years' worth of planting experience now, and she's certainly witnessed it being done often enough too.

We like to joke around that since the children are going to help eat the food, they might as well help grow it too. This is one of our favorite productive tasks to do together as a family. What's one of your "jobs" or "chores" that you like to do with your children? Are there any memories you have of helping your parents out from your childhood that you enjoy?

Until next time…

I remember when I was a child I had to help on the fields and I hated that. I will never forget those hot days, sweat and pain when we were harvesting about 50 rows of potatoes (around 150 meters long) with hoes. We were always around 20 people and it took us up to a week to harvest. Now we have a tractor so it's not that bad :)

As I said, I really didn't like this work but now I'm grateful that I got a chance to learn how to grow fruits and vegetables. There are many kids who will never get this chance so you're doing a great thing by teaching your kids what is truly important in life and how to make your own food :)
