I find it overwhelming when I think about planting a garden. Is it because my mom used to plant a bloody HUGE garden that took hours and days and weeks of work to plant, weed, water, etc. But realistically a garden doesn’t have to be big. A visit to your local garden centre or greenhouse will show you that there are plenty of options to plant. If it’s your first time or you have limited space, you can start by planting your favourite plant or vegetable.
Whether you have a back yard or a balcony or belong to a community garden, let the space be your canvas and reap all of the benefits to gardening including:
Beautifying the Space
Color always adds some fun to our outdoors. Winters seem too long, no matter what the temperatures were. Enjoy some pops of color now.
Making New Friends
– Spending time in your outdoor space may mean you’ll get to meet your neighbours who have a similar interest.
– Grow your own vegetables and herbs instead of buying at the store or farmers markets.
– Burn calories while gardening.
– Get a dose of Vitamin D from the sun.
– Get some exercise too
