So, it’s gorgeous outside in Tennessee. It’s the time of year when I start to think about outdoor projects. And since one of my kids’ favorite passtimes is digging for worms in the mulch I thought why not get a little garden going. But then I remembered that I am lazy strategic. So I needed to find a low-cost and low-commimtent way to go about it.
A landscape designer at a local nursery Saplings Garden Center suggested flowers over veggies and pots over a plot for beginners. Excellent, I thought. He also suggested letting the kids decorate the pots first. Excellent AGAIN, I thought. The kids had a ball painting thier pots and planting sunflower seeds. Now they are having fun checking the progress of the plants each day.
Quick and Easy Flowers From Seeds
If you want instant gratification, plant existing flowers in pots or the yard. If you want to grow from seeds (and are impatient like me) you’ll want to start with flowering seeds like daisies, marigolds or sunflower seeds.
Quick and Easy Veggies From Seeds
If you want to grow veggies from seeds and would like to see quick results, then you should choose cucumbers, carrots or tomoatoes.
