Toddlers and Allotments

You can’t take her there said my husband. She’ll get bored. 

Well you can and its great for her. What’s not to like about putting on your wellie boots, playing with mud and water that’s collected in a wheelbarrow?

She’s watched ladybirds, helped to plant seeds, picked carrots, potatoes and lettuce and watered plants. Not to forget being able to run around. 

It’s great that she is learning about where food comes from. 

I’m not advocating everybody gets an allotment. It’s a huge time commitment but even just a few plants in your back garden can give little ones enjoyment and teach them where food comes from.
