The Miracle Gro Project
Hey..Mister Green Thumb, I have an exciting project for you! Miracle-Gro has come up with The Gro Project that is fun, exciting, enjoyable, and easy to do. It is also a fun project to do with the kids, who are out of school for the summer and what kid doesn’t like to play in the dirt? Me and husband both got excited when we read about these projects, then we went right to work and came up with this idea. The open terrarium (also known as “Men Chopping Wood”), was the project we came up with and we’ll show you how we did it in just a little bit.
First, I want to share with you The Gro Project. Miracle-Gro has come up with some fun garden projects that I know you will really enjoy. I love the Toyarium for the kids and the Ukulele Garden would be awesome on the patio. They also have an Origami Garden, G.T.O.B. and the Thrown Down. It doesn’t matter if your new at this or if you’re a professional, Miracle-Gro gives you step-by-step instructions and videos to make sure it’s done right. You can check out their site at Miracle-Gro.com or Follow them on Facebook. Better yet, join them on Pinterest and find out what other gardeners are up too! Belive me, they have all the answers and tools you need to do any garden project.
Now, onto the “Men Chopping Wood”. We wanted do something that would go good with our country decor and be able to grow something that we could keep growing for a later use. Thus, came the pine trees. This was so much fun to do. We got up early, before the heat came in, and went in our woods in search of baby pines, twigs, rocks and wood. After getting all the stuff we needed from the woods and the little men, tractor and bear(behind log watching) already on hand, we started putting it together.
Well, what do you think? Who knows, maybe one of the pines will be a Christmas tree some years down the road.
I have to confess, this was our first project like this that Husband and I have done together. Sooo..we used what we had on hand for the potting soil and plant feed. However, next trip to the store, we will be purchasing these items for our future miniature gardens. And you can bet their will be more.

Oh..how about a little Gnome scene. No..No..maybe one with a miniature stone BBQ pit and a little picnic table, they’d be fun to construct! My brain is going a hundred miles a minute here as we just hate to grow up and just love to have fun!
