Milk Carton Gardening - Build those Memories




Now More than Ever - Lets Get Kids Gardening - 

When did we abandon the simple pleasures of growing carrots in milk cartons, planting hollyhocks along old fences or having fragrant lilacs at the corner of a house? 

Let's reclaim this as part of our ordinary life...


Hollyhocks

We all have such memories - even city kids like me...

It might be the 'weed' that smelled like licorice (anise hyssop), 

or the buttercups that you put under your chin, 


or the honeysuckle that you could suck a teeny drop of 'honey' from, 



Honeysuckle

the sweet smell of roses as you walked past a certain house, 




or the bright yellow daffodils in early spring that sprang up overnight it seemed.

I would like us to revive 'garden memories' - to bring flowers, plants and gardens back into our lives.

This kind of knowledge has been cast aside in favor of math and physics but I say children can learn those disciplines better through understanding the phenomenal natural world around them.

So plant those sunflower seeds, pop in that Elephant Ear bulb and cut up those milk cartons....

transcendent garden memories await you and yours.

    2. Thanks to Dr OSAGIE for helping me increase the size of my Penis. I have been married for 10 years and due to my small Penis I was unable to satisfy my wife and that made us childless and my wife planed to leave me I was really disappointed with myself and I was also having weak erection I thought all my hope was gone not until I saw a testimony on how the same Dr OSAGIE helped someone increase his Penis size. I was desperate to do anything to regain my sex life back and I contacted him and he promise to help me so he gave me a herbal mixture which i was using and after three days I began to experience changes. Well am writing this testimony is not only because he has helped me increase the size of my Penis, I can now satisfy my wife and my wife is three months pregnant. All thanks to Dr OSAGIE if you are having weak erection problem or small Penis size contact him with his email:drosagiesolutionhome5@gmail.com or whats app him +2348034778129.
