Earth Day 2012

To celebrate Earth Day this year I took Miss M to the NEX Garden Center and let her pick out two plants. We've been doing gardening already so she's pretty familiar with what we were doing, as well as with the Garden Center.

Not long after we walked in I told her the plan:

"You can pick out one flower and one vegetable, OK?"

"OK!" Miss M spun around, "I want this one!" As she grabbed a pot of flowers half her size off a bottom shelf. 

The vegetable section was a little depleted so I decided on some mint. It's sturdy and grows fast so she'll be able to watch it grow. 

We came home and transplanted them into some empty pots. Then Miss M had to do some "tree magic" to help them along. If you haven't seen Totoro you won't know what I'm talking about, but it's kind of a thing in our house. 

It started to rain so we headed inside and turned on Totoro. Overall it was a good way to celebrate Earth Day with her for the first time!
