I found my gardening groove #DigIn

get gardening with your kids #digin

While putting together my Thriller, Filler, Spiller garden project, I gained a new confidence and love for getting my hands dirty in soil. I had anticipated that. I knew that once I gave it a try, got out of my comfort zone and went for it, I’d love working in our yard and on fun garden projects.

But something else happened that I hadn’t anticipated… further connecting with my daughter.

This week was a tough week for me work-wise. I was busy, busy, busy. However, with this project I needed to stop the madness for one afternoon. I loved stepping away from the computer, away from my desk and heading outside to make something pretty with my daughter. I loved digging into the soil, teaching her tricks that I had learned from Home Depot’s Garden Center Club, and letting her lead the way with ideas on where we should place the plants in the containers.

One of the highlights of this projects was her ripping open the soil bag further and declaring, “this is super fun getting messy!” It was at that moment when I decided we would do this more. And more she did… she picked up some discarded plants parts from our project and decided to make her own little container and now she’s my watering girl. I absolutely LOVE that my daughter has also been bitten by the gardening bug.

I also loved that when my husband came home and saw our newly created masterpiece he declared how “impressed’ he was. He was smiling and surprised that I had created this gardening container. Score for showing another side of me!


Now, I live in beautiful Hawaii so gardening should become part of my life year round, and I look forward to that. The intimidation has gone away a wee bit and I know that if I need help or have questions, the employees at The Home Depot will help me figure it out.

You may live in a place that gets cold winters but spring has sprung (or hopefully will soon!). I encourage you to jump into new gardening projects at home in your yard or garden. Get your kids involved. Break away from  that computer, smart phone or ipad, grab some dirt and DIG IN!
