ABC Wednesday - H is for Herbs

Today is the "H" day, so I couldn't resist showing off how Lucas' Herb little garden is growing! We started it with 2 types of basil, camomile, strawberries and mint. Now we have, beside those, one more type of basil, lavender, oregano, thyme and little orange:

Before...
And now...

It's just touching to see how careful and concerned Lucas is about his herbs. He water them every morning before breakfast, move them to shade at lunch time, and already knows all of them by name. As we use a lot of herbs when preparing our meals, he's the one who picks what we need, and no need of telling him in which vase they are, he doens't make a mistake. And is very careful not to hurt the plant by pulling a bunch of leaves, just the necessary to season the recipes. Can't wait to add more to it!

Your children are both so cute!
I am so jealous that you can grew herbs. I have tried several times and I seem to kill them. This was a great choice for the letter H

I love herbs, and I think they are a great way of teaching children about Nature, Spirituality, the Earth's Bounty, etc.

And I agree... your kids are so cute!
