Gardening With Mom

Posted by on May 8th 2018 in blog


One of my fondest childhood memories is spending countless hours out in the garden with my mom. I remember planting marigolds in the vegetable garden and my mom telling me that they helped to deter pests from all our delicious veggies. Nothing is better than eating fresh veggies from the garden. As a kid, I loved eating cucumbers and remember training them up a trellis to conserve space in the garden. There’s nothing quite like the taste of sweet, tender carrots with dirt still on them or popping a cherry tomato in your mouth as you got your knees covered in dirt – all while helping mom.”

Urban Gardening

More and more people are starting to pass on the family tradition of gardening. Urban gardening has increased steadily as more families incorporate gardens in their homes. There’s something truly special about growing your own food and reaping the benefits of your hard work in the garden.

Great Time to Get Started

It’s a great time of year to start cucumber seeds right in the ground and plant your tomato plants as well. Also, don’t forget about carrots and lettuce! Carrots are planted by seed and take 2-4 months to harvest. Lettuce is a great vegetable to plant as it doesn’t take up a lot of space and it can grow amount many other types of flowers and vegetables. Start rows of lettuce every 10 days to ensure you always have having to eat throughout the summer.
