30 things to do in the garden during lockdown

During lockdown we have been spending a lot of time playing in the garden and have come up with '30 things to do in the garden during lockdown'.

Making a Cress Head

We really enjoyed making our cress head, especially as after the initial activity, as we got to nurture the cress and watch it grow. It was great fun cutting off the cress when it was long enough and eating it in egg sandwiches. What do I need to make a cress head?

Planting seeds in pots A bit of background about our vegetable patch Since my husband and I set up home together we have always had a vegetable patch (with the exception of the years our children were born, as it was too much of a commitment with a new born), in fact we have both been growing fruit, salad and vegetables since we were children, so it came naturally to us and something we want for our children to come naturally to them. There is something rewarding and fascinating about nature and being able to grow what we eat from a s...
