Does anyone have experience gardening with young children? Any ideas on where I might find some real tools that are his size? Recommendations on how to involve him in the gardening (without getting frustrated when he oh so sweetly tries to help but accidently does more damage then good)? My son is 2 and loves to be outside. He's also Mama's little helper but there are times that thisgets dangerous (for him, me and the dogs). I've tried to find him little tools like mine but mostly they're just the crappy plastic ones that don't do anything and he gets mad. Last year he was interested in helping me harvest which worked out great. This year however, I got him involved in the planting portion of gardening and now almost wish I hadn't. We planted several plastic bottles with seeds and when they germinated, I turned my back on him long enough to bring out a second tub of seedlings (moving them to the greenhouse) only to find that he had dumped approx 20 out and wanted to plant more seeds. Very frustrating. I want him involved especially since he's interested but I think there must be a better way to do it.
