Yes Michigan, spring IS coming! It may not arrive on the 20th as planned, but soon enough the trees will leaf out and the sunshine will return. Chances are you will spend some time searching for fun and engaging things to do with the kids this year. Look no further! If your children are anything like my 4-year old daughters, they love to watch things grow…That’s why you should build a raised vegetable garden when the snow melts! Building the structure, adding the soil, planting the seeds, and caring for your garden are all engaging activities that your family will enjoy, and what a great learning experience for the kids. Oh, and don’t forget all the healthy fresh veggies you and your family(and friends) will enjoy!
It doesn’t get much easier. I’ll spare you the technical details, these can easily be found on the internet or your local garden center.
Have fun with your garden! Don’t be afraid to get creative…a little paint never hurt anything, and the kids will love to make their mark on your new hobby. Not enough room for a garden? Maybe you live in an apartment or condo…no problem! A small trough on the patio can be a great place to grow herbs and spices, and the concept remains the same.
Please feel free to give our team at R&A a call if you have questions on starting your new garden. Good luck and enjoy those veggies!
