My newly planted garden is needing a little extra TLC while it gets established and no one seems eager to water it.  I stumbled across another blog yesterday and it was just the inspiration I needed.

yellow duct tape
a black sharpie marker
scissors to cut the tape
some left over plant tags
firefighters’ apparel
the garden hose with sprayer

I wrote out the alphabet in both upper and lower case on the duct tape and strategically placed them throughout the garden on the plant tags and on the wall behind.  The kids got on their hats we have a fun putting out the fires in our little spelling/letter-recognition game, plus my garden gets some much needed water.  Win/Win.  Can’t wait to play again tomorrow!
