It was an ambitious project. My husband laid out the plans for five raised garden beds. The kids were thrilled! Being outside in nature- HEAVEN!


The plan included

🌱Digging up the soil,

🌱 Building the raised garden beds,

🌱Planting veggies and herbs,

🌱 Watering AND

🌱 HARVESTING!!!


They spent so much time outside in nature. And started to appreciate everything that came out of our little garden:

✨Radishes, ✨Kale, ✨Spinach, ✨Butter lettuce, ✨Salad Mix, ✨Arugula, ✨Cilantro, ✨Basil, ✨Bok Choy, ✨Fennel.


Gardening is a wonderful stress relief! It boosts your mood when your plants are thriving. Especially during these current times, it is so fun to go outdoors and harvest some fruits or vegetables that you planted yourself!


Given that I am vegan, I have enjoyed eating oodles of veggies from our garden, and I can not wait to see what new delicious treats  will come up next. So, if you have never gardened before, no worries. Anybody can pick up a new hobby! The New Year is coming, this could be a fun hobby to pick up.


Enjoy taking a step outside, take a deep breath and look at the array of colors. After all, it is about understanding nature, so we can protect it.
