If you’re ready for a little family R&R, you don’t need to look beyond your own front door! Family vacations are terrific. But they’re not hassle-free. Between making travel arrangements, getting the family to agree to an itinerary and watching your credit card bills go up, up, up, vacations can be downright stressful. And let’s not even think about the price of gas, which has affected not only driving costs, but the price of airline tickets, too.
Whether it is the cost of groceries these days, the economy or just the desire to grow your own, beginning and seasoned gardeners are adding fruits, vegetables and herbs to their landscape. The many benefits of edible gardening, including the enhanced flavor, increased nutrient density of the food, and the sustainability factor provide a compelling argument to 'get growing'!
Are you simultaneously excited about and dreading the approaching summer? If so, you might want to start preparing now to make the most of all of that unstructured, non-scheduled, stress-free time your kids will soon be spending at home… or the summer may not end up nearly as relaxing for you as it is for your kids!
