essential life skills {5} gardening

I have written about gardening before. I LOVE it.

But seriously. If you are not doing it, you need to.

What amazes me is that you can create something from a tiny little seed and then you can feed your family with it. And you are feeding your family organic magic food. And possibly if your kid is a picky eater, he may start eating the stuff he picks off plants himself. Plants that he put in the ground and helped water and watched you lovingly sing AC/DC songs too.

Here are two books I am using for gardening advice.

Grow Great Grub

Square Foot Gardening
