Is your family planning a garden this year? We haven’t had one for some time, but this spring I’ve prepared a small plot for tomatoes, summer squash, cucumbers, and green peppers. The seeds were planted indoors in April. If you’re too late for that, you can always buy a few plants at the greenhouse.
As I prepared the ground, I thought back to the endless hours I spent as a boy, crawling around in the dirt and playing in my back yard.
What boy do you know who doesn’t enjoy digging around in the dirt with his hands? They don’t even need an excuse, but if you give them one, all the better. Boys can get into the gardening process with you, and then take personal pride in seeing the vegetables appear a few weeks later.
Of course, it helps if the like vegetables too.
If you haven’t started a garden yet, I hope you’ll give it a try. And you can save money in the process.
