There are so many things I'm looking forward to this growing season. I can't wait to watch him learn about the plants as they sprout and grow, to get covered in dirt with him in the garden as we prep our soil, to teach him which plants are weeds and get pulled, and transferring the starts to the soil together and help them grow. Most of all I look forward to picking fresh produce from our back yard and teaching my son where good food comes from.
I made a promise to my sons over a year ago and I have not held to it as well as I intended to. I've been lazier (aka very busy with a million other things) than I should be. Their well being is the most important thing to me, and I am getting back on track with their nutrition and chemical exposure NOW, and our garden is a big part of that, and a big part of teaching my boys about nutrition.
