It’s almost garden time! At least here in Florida it is. Our family has been gardening for 8 years now. The kids love getting their hands dirty, watching the garden grow, picking bugs off the plants and sampling their creations right from the garden. My kids LOVE fresh vegetables and I credit that to introducing them to gardening since they were babies! If you have never planted a garden before, I encourage you to try. Start small with a container garden or a little pallet garden. The ideas are endless and the kids will love it.
