A word to the wise.

If you have some garden-based project, or idea, that you are convinced will engage small children – then abandon it immediately. It will singularly fail to do anything other than annoy them at best, and at worst invoke indifference. Hostile indifference at that.

Here, by way of an example, is an example.

Some free alpine strawberry seeds came my way. And Little Boots loves, nay, luuurves, strawberries. So I explained that I had some strawberry seeds , but they were special strawberries, that came from mountains and were much more tasty than ordinary strawberries, but were a lot smaller. Wasn’t that great?

“No. They won’t grow,” pronounced LB. “They come from mountains and we only live on a bit of a hill.”
