The Super Cool Grandparents Guide I

State Farmers Market
Take your grandchildren to the South Carolina State Farmers Market, let them pick out a plant or two, get tips from the vendor and then let your grandkids plant them in your yard.  Allow them to nurture them each time they visit you throughout the summer and let them take pictures of the plant as it grows and blossoms. Better yet… let them buy an herb or veggie plant, one they and you can eventually eat! SC State Farmers Market
