Summer Fun: Planting tomatoes

  1. What you need:
    tomato plants bought at the nursery
    small rake and shovel
    water can

  2. Take a trip to a nursery and buy some tomato plants.  Let your child help prepare the soil with her rake and shovel and plant the tomato.  Water thoroughly after planting.  Explain to her how to take care of the plants so that she will have lots of tomatoes to harvest (for example, weeding, watering, and feeding).

  3. Mimi loved it very much.  She waters and checks the plants every day to see if there are any tomatoes to harvest.
