Now the Spring is finally arriving, a lot of folks have visions of beautiful gardens dancing in their heads. Here in Ohio, we have a good sized yard, and the kids definitely want to plant some flowers, herbs, and veggies of their own. Not only is this a hands-on Science lesson for my homeschoolers, it's also learning valuable life skills. I personally believe that every child should learn to cultivate their own sustainable, healthy foods. Not only does this save money at the grocery store, it also promises fresher produce and fosters pride in hard work and dedication. Gardening for kids is definitely a win-win situation in my book!
Recently, I learned about a great brand that offers fun, easy to use gardening kits that the whole family can enjoy.

Place coffee filters at the bottom of small pots to allow drainage but keep soil in.

My tip is to after planting tomatoes, put black paper around them and put mulch around them.

Keep up on watering your plants and make sure they are getting the light they require. Every plant is different.

Gardening is one of my very favorite things to do! My tip is to try winter sowing in containers. Works very well for seeds that need a stratification period.

My tip is ...when we plant peas and beans, I continue planting a few extra seeds every other week...so we can continue to get our harvest all through the fall too!

I use dried up crushed egg shells around my plants to nourish and keep slugs away! Works like a charm!

3/29/2017 06:42:23 am
I water my garden early in the morning before the sun gets really hot so things don't burn

My tip is that if you are growing lettuce you should put some used tea leaves around the spot you plant them. This keeps any moles away.

I don't have a green thumb for gardening. Remember to water. I would like this for my kids. I think trying a garden would be a learning experience for them and would be fun.

Volunteer at a botanic garden and you will learn a lot.
