Planting our initial garden.
The boys picked out various flowers, some seed, some bulbs, and herbs to plant. We were selective, purchasing only herbs and food bearing plants we knew we would utilize. Bulbs we later learned are half price at the end of each growing season. Useful tip!
We've re-purposed all or most of our cartons, cardboard boxes, and planters for new garden additions. Having children take part in the process from beginning to end is so rewarding, once they see how life grows. It's not only beauty or sustenance, but our place in the world, our contribution to the environment.
From aromatherapy to ailments.
We are huge fans of essential oils, herbs, resins, and the like. Discovering all the medicinal, therapeutic, and aromatic properties of plants and oils can help arm us with great knowledge about our health, and our lives.
