Bring a little joy to your day with gardening. It’s a fun activity and a great way to get sunshine and exercise. Whether you have a backyard or a balcony, a little space is all you need. Try these three simple steps to get started.
Before you dig in, decide what you’d like to plant. Favorites like tomatoes, carrots, lettuce and herbs are great for first-time gardeners. Check the Farmer’s Almanac for the best plants and planting times for your region and climate. Then, choose the right garden for your space.
This makes it easy and fun for kids to watch their seedlings grow. Starting your seeds inside also gives your plants a head start, bringing an earlier harvest and letting your kids enjoy their fruits and veggies sooner.
Let your little gardener choose where they want to plant their plants in the garden. Have them water and tend to their plants, and soon they’ll be ready for harvest!
