I received an email from a reader this week, Mariann from Arizona. She’s planted some herbs and vegetables for the first time.
Since her 13 year old son was learning about planting and germinating at school, she saw it as a way for them to bond and share the experience.
They’ve planted tomatoes, cucumber, basil, oregano and sunflower seeds.
To me that’s just awesome.
In our correspondences with each other, Mariann had a lot of questions and expressed how nervous she was.
After some back and forth of questions and answers, she seemed much more comfortable and realized that nothing horrible was going to happen. The worst thing being a plant might not make it. If it didn’t she’d give it another go until the plant did make it.
So not only is she start growing her own vegetables, she’s found a way to bond with her son.
Mariann has started her vegetable garden, when are you starting yours?
