summer garden

I decided not to do a big garden this year. After all the rain we had at the beginning of the season, and how busy it has been, I decided that I wouldn't have enough time to focus on it this year. BUT - that did not stop me from planting my sunflower seeds!

My kids LOVE getting messy in the mud, and watering the plants each day. It's also fun teaching them how plants grow. This summer we decided to plant a variety of sunflowers. They are so excited to see the small sunflower sprouts growing!

I love to garden, it's very calming. It's nice to hangout in my backyard and watch the little sprouts grow over six feet tall. Plus it's great for the bees!

A fall garden might have to happen! I wouldn't mind growing some kale, swiss chard, lettuce, and a few other simple things. If you are looking to buy seeds to start your fall garden, I really recommend Seeds Now. They offer organic, non-gmo seeds, which is great. You can buy little start packs for less than $1!
