We Play in the Garden

We have been taking a little family holiday staying with my sister-in-law on the south coast.
The boys love staying here - partly because they get to spend time with a favourite Aunt but also because they just love her permaculture garden.
Last Christmas when we came to visit Rascal was toddling about stuffing himself with all the fruit and veg he could find - 12 months on and he is running about stuffing himself with all the fruit and veg he can find. Rascal can never sit still long enough to eat breakfast but here he just wanders outside and grazes on strawberries, raspberries and blueberries on the go - just his type of fast food. Junior has also been digging potatoes in Grandpa's garden and harvesting peas and bean with their uncle. Such a nice way to discover the delights of fresh food and a timely reminder that we really must do more in the garden with the boys this year.
What outdoor play have you been enjoying over the New Year break? “Come over and play at the Childhood 101 We Play link up”


  1. We've been picking our own strawberries in our garden too, such a lovely fresh snack :) My girls have been having lots of fun playing outside making mud pies, visit friends with swimming pool/water slide and generally having a ball outside in the freshair which is awesome :)
