Gardening. Is there anything better than a fresh tomato right off the vine? Maybe a warm, juicy, sun ripened strawberry? Grocery store produce simply can’t compare to fresh fruits & veggies you grow yourself. It’s a wonderful way to connect to your food, and to give your children a greater appreciation for the food on your table. I grew up “helping” my mother in the garden (now that I have my own kids, I’m not sure how much help I was!), some of my very earliest memories take place in my mother’s garden. Starting my own garden was one of the first things I did when I left home. I love that anyone can garden – city dwellers with only a sunny window or balcony and country folk with 100 acres – everyone can benefit from growing their own food!
