Flowers, Tomatoes and Cantaloupes…Oh My!

If you haven’t already planted your flower pots, flower garden, veggies or strawberry patch, I highly encourage you to involve your kiddos.  Planting is a perfect way to allow your kids to not only get dirty, but learn about where their food comes from along with soil health and responsibility.
