#30DaysWild Day 1 – Vegetable planting

30Days1This is the third year I’ve taken part in the Wildlife Trusts 30 Days Wild initiative but yet again June has crept up all too quickly on me and my best laid plans haven’t even actually been laid so I’m taking the call to enact a month of “Random Acts of Wildness” at its most randomness.

I thought I had at least the first few days covered with a planned camping trip for the end of half term but the predicted thunder storms led to us opting to stay home instead.

So it was into the back garden that the eldest two minis headed to plant some lettuce and radishes.

In previous years their zeal for growing vegetables led to excessive watering and meant very little actually made it to a plate – fingers crossed for our tummies sake that the forecasted downpours don’t drown our salad even quicker this year.

If you’re looking for some proper planning inspiration then check out The Life Schoolers Instagram post showing their month all planned out.  I particularly liked their idea of using post-it notes in case they wanted to swap them around or do something different on the day, I might borrow that idea for a future year when the minis can be trusted not to do the rearranging just for fun themselves.
