Who am I to resist being urged to show off my baby boy? :lol:

advice

Did pam mention this condition of entry?

One of the criteria is that the garden should be achievable to a typical Australian gardener without unreasonable effort or expertise or expenditure. Ideally the photo would inspire others to try similar ideas in their own garden.

I think a baby is costly and takes effort and i am not inspired to grow babies. :D
Maybe we should have a cute kid the garden comp, my daughter will love that idea. :lol:

Heh, it's all relative, Jack! (no pun intended)
By the definition "unreasonable effort or expertise or expenditure", I'd have to veto all chook sheds, because I'd have to go to EXTREME efforts to get my husband to agree to put one in the backyard! The bribery alone would bankrupt me :D

As a novelty photo, though, you have to admit it has a certain charm... but then, do you think there's a chance I'm biased? :wink:

no chance, tried that with daughter in shed competition and it did not even get a mention.
as for chook shed, me confused, do babies come from chook sheds?

Baby chickens do......I spend most of my time trying to keep my baby (who's a bit bigger) out of my flower beds! She loves to pick the buds, If she had her way I'd never see any flowers! Congrats on the garden critter, it's hard to take a bad photo with such great material hey :D

Lara - encourage, encourage, encourage....

Our kids have grown with our garden - they're 4 and 6 now. Served broccoli a few weeks ago - yuk! - said "we grew this" the story changed - I've never seen kids eat so much!

Our girls love going into the garden and picking tomatoes, lettuce, herbs etc. It is amazing what they will try if 'they' grew it!

Good luck!

Isobel, my daughter, is always outside with me. Her Dad is a horticulturalist and landscape designer so I'm sure she'll be in with the thick of things soon, whether she wants to be or not :lol: At the moment she is 15 months old and thinks it's very funny when I say no or stop. I don't mind her playing in the dirt, it's the shoving plant matter in her mouth that concerns me, some of that stuff is poisonous! :shock:
