Spring is finally here and it’s the perfect time to start a garden. Here in Florida, I have friends that started their garden a month ago! I still have to get my little seedlings into the ground. We love to garden. It is a great way to teach your children where their food comes from, it saves money and you know that the food you are eating is safe! If you are new to gardening you may want to do some research and planning first. I don’t think there is a wrong time to start a garden. You can start small and make it bigger each year.
I have found some really awesome Garden Planners and Printables to help you get started:
