Planting with Eio kids

Since we have a front balcony at our new place, let’s make good use of it. Finally Mrs Eio get started with planting. 2 weeks ago, we started planting Lemon balm. After reading that it’s an “aggressive” plant. We decided that it’ll have a pot for itself so that it doesn’t “engulf” other plants.       

 Of course, not forgetting to tell the kids plants need air, good, water & sunlight & what’s photosynthesis etc… (as if they can fully understand the process.. Haha. Nevertheless, no harm sharing with them. ) Just remembered that Mrs Eio used to be a relief secondary Science teacher for 6 months after her A levels. The thing about planting with Eio kids is that they’ll check on the plants. So the next day, Em dug out his encyclopedia, put it beside the plant & started telling me about what’s writen in it. As you can see after awhile, El is totally not interested with what he’s talking about. Lol. 

Last week, we tried planting Chilli Padi from their seeds. Growing a plant from the seeds really test our patience. Em kept asking why the plant is not growing…

Finally after a week of waiting, the Chilli Padi seeds started to germinate & we can see the seedlings. Phew…

This Monday, we started growing onions so that Mrs Eio can have spring onion for her fried rice. Lol. We just bought a small pot of sweet Basil from Fairprice finest today & will start planting tomorrow after getting hold of some fertilizers. Will update our progress again. 👍

Genesis 1:29 (New International Version)

Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.”
