For us it would be wellies (in rainy season) or flip flops and a great imagination. I would go even further that Lara's suggestion of low-tech and would suggest no-tech! The Tweenies and I are off into the garden now, each have a small spade and we are off to plant some bulbs and get the second batch of lettuce into the ground. It's so beautiful to create something in your garden and even if you live in an apartment you can be just as creative with a window box of balcony planter. Whether it be flowers or produce, the children get an immense amount of pride planting and with the twins it becomes a daily ritual before we hop into the car for school to see if the plants have grown. There is also something so wonderful about growing your own food, it just tastes a million times better than supermarket produce. Happy Easter and Happy Sowing!
