After the long cold winter sometimes we don’t think it will ever happen, but spring does come eventually. The Sun shines brightly, the soil warms up and some of our favorites start the pop through the ground ,daffodils,crocuses and such.
Getting the kids involved in gardening can be nothing but a good thing, they will learn so much, it can be a lot of very messy work and sometimes mother nature has plans of her own that don’t agree with yours. Pests may make their way into your garden and make things difficult, but don’t give up, the rewards far outweigh the challenges.
The kids will learn understanding of where food comes from and what goes into producing healthy food. And there is the obvious benefit, Nutrition, I have found with my own daughter she is more likely to eat a tomato or bean or cucumber out of the garden,than one that is served to her that came from the store.
Before you know it the kids will know all the names of the plants, the difference between the weeds and the fruit or vegetable your growing.
Just the appreciation of the work that goes into growing your own food will greatly benefit the kids as they grow up.
So go out and get some child sized garden tools, wheel barrel, hoes and rakes, and enjoy the growing season with your kids.
