Truth be known, Mrs. Rabbit's garden was planted with seeds harvested by Peter Rabbit, which he procured on one of his mysterious outings in the woods. If only she knew! Yet, the woods were a place of foraging and foraging it was to a little rabbit of Peter's mind.
"First he ate some lettuces and some French beans;
and then he ate some radishes..."
It is very clear that he came across quite a bit of produce! There were the lettuces, french beans, radishes and of course, the parsley to calm his upset stomach. And then there were the cucumbers, cabbages and onions which also made themselves available.
"And then, feeling rather sick, he went to look for some parsley..."
"But round the end of a cucumber frame,
whom should he meet but Mr. McGregor!..
Mr. McGregor was on his hands and knees planting out young cabbages,
but he jumped up and ran after Peter,
waving a rake and calling out,
Like Mr. McGregor, there is one frustration I had with this little project. The back side of the seed packets share an appropriate excerpt from the book. However, I didn't think to give the text enough room at the top so when you fold over your packet, it covers some of the verse. Being a busy wife and mother, I just couldn't redo them all and so I apologize for that (here the author releases a sorrowful sigh). However, a dear reader mentioned this help, "the top can be tucked inside and glued as well as outside".
If you are interested, here are the printable packets for your supply of seeds. There are *15 different vegetables* (plus chamomile) included along with *one blank printable* that you can customize.

All you need to do is print out our printable, cut around the outline, fold in/glue the back together, insert appropriate seeds and finally glue the top flap shut. The End...

JES, the seed packets are really adorable, and I can't wait to use them. This is just the right time of year to gift a young child with seeds to inspire them to learn gardening skills so I am planning to do just that. I think the top can be tucked inside and glued as well as outside. Thank you, and have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
