Little Helpers (on their own terms)

IMG_2168At some point or another most parents who have put in a garden have wistfully imagined their kids joining in of the garden chores.  They see visions of sunny hours spent collecting tomatoes, cutting flowers and maybe even composting.  Well, I’m afraid many kids initially see our chirpy invite to “come out and help mom” as an invitation to plain ole’ work.  Not that I had a choice when I was young.  Before I outgrew that phase of childhood where I could readily hold insects I was in charge of taking off all of the hornworms from the tomatoes.  Okay, those things are freaky!  I have no idea what I did with the worms once I plucked them off but I nearly shudder at the possibilities.  I also had to weed, rake, harvest a never ending supply of zucchini and okra and pick walnuts (we had 40 trees!).  Believe me – my sister, Carrie, and I knew what chores were.  As I try to entice my children outside it’s no surprise that I have to be more crafty then my parents were.  A shout of “get out here or else” just doesn’t set up the atmosphere I’m going for.  Instead, I must tap into each personality I’m dealing with.  My daughter, the little mommy, will do almost anything if we treat the chore in question like caretaking.  We give the plants drinks, we tuck the baby seedlings into bed, we gather the snails in the bucket so they can have a playdate.  That sort of thing.  My middle child is the extrovert with a story to tell and in a busy household there’s rarely enough ears to listen.  He’ll join in on a chore if it means he has my undivided attention.  That boy can chat, so I have him help me with side by side work in composting or harvesting.  My oldest gets excited if there’s some pounding or cutting involved.  The more potential for injury the better with him.  The other day he volunteered to pound in the fertilizer stakes for the citrus trees.  Whatever works.  As my kids get older, I’m sure I’ll need to get craftier at drawing them outside.  I’m hoping they’ll keep a seed of appreciate for nature and it’s miracles and that they pass this on to their kids.  If they don’t, I will.
