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!
