With spring just around the corner, my thoughts are turning to the garden. We live in the city, so we have a tiny backyard garden and we need to make the most of our space. In the six years that we have lived in our row house, we have had some variety of garden just about every year.
I love having a garden. It gives us an excuse to get off technology and get out side. I have a secret. I like playing in dirt. I love running the dirt through my fingers and breaking up the clumps.
I even enjoy finding knotted worms
and funky snails.
What I really enjoy is planting things that my family can eat. The most common things that grow well in our garden are tomatoes, snap peas, and beans.
It is time to dig out the garden/seed bucket, develop a plan with the kids, and then get outside.
- Have you planted your garden yet?
- What kinds of things do you plant in your garden?
- Do your kids help you?
