Gardening is a great way to save money and teach your children where food comes from. I have been gardening since before I had babies. My children have always grown up with some sort of garden in our backyard. They love helping me get the soil ready, plant the seeds and watch them grow. Their favorite thing is harvest time!
One of the things I have noticed about having a garden is that my children are always willing to try and taste new things. I get a lot of compliments on how they love to eat their veggies! This isn’t something that I pushed on them, it just came naturally from having a garden and being exposed to fresh vegetables since they were babies. I didn’t realize how gardening can be such an amazing learning experience and it ties in beautifully with homeschooling.
Thou Shall Not Whine has also been gardening for a very long time. You will love her great article on the lessons that can be learned from gardening and how to get started!
