How to grow a garden when you don't have time to grow a garden because in any free time you may possibly have, you're growing a toddler and a preschooler instead, and hopefully turning them into semi-normal children. Fingers crossed everybody.
Now let's get down to some hard-core 15 minute gardening!
Step 1: Get a lovely Seed Bomb Kit from LAUrbanHarvest.etsy.com -- ours is the Wild Flowers standard mix.
Step 2: Follow the wonderfully simple instructions within the kit which will show you how to make seedbombs which look like meatballs...but don't eat them. And when your 2yr old tries to eat them, tell her there's worm ca-ca in there, and she'll stop eating them immediately...and then she'll feed it to the dog.
Oh and be very very glad that the instructions contain cute little photos...because if you're anything like me these days...you'll be reading instructions while at the same time slapping your eyelids to stay awake because of all the nighttime awakenings and nursing...and also doing the whole falling-back-asleep-thing just to awaken to swift kicks from a spunky 4yr old who insists on sleeping in the "big-bed" even after telling him his big boy bed is way better. Then baby girl hears her Mama getting the junk beat out of her TaeKwonDo style, so she wakes up scratching her Mama to nurse, yet again.
Let's move on, shall we?
Step 3: Get "Little Night Kicker" and his sidekick "Little Miss Scratchesalot" together, and schedule a playdate with a couple of their best buddies. Have them toss the seedbombs out into the yard. Notice the one-footed monster.
Step 4: Have patience. :)
