Up to 18, yes, 18 wintersown containers chillin’ outside in my garden. Today, Wee One, age 3 1/2, helped sow the seeds. He’s a great assistant and truly LOVES gardening. This past summer, he would take seeds from some of the flower heads, dig a bit in the bed and plant them. He taught Wee Too, age 1 1/2 and they would stand there, side by side, working on their own impromptu flower garden. Some of the seeds grew and they took absolute delight in looking at the little stems and leaves popping fresh from the soil.
