One of the things I absolutely love about spring, is getting out and getting dirty! After spending a long New England winter in hibernation mode, green little sprouts bring about new life and energy. It feels amazing to reconnect with nature and be apart of the process. Admittedly, I do not have a green thumb. But man do I love trying lol. There’s something about picking the perfect pottery, planting seeds and nurturing them to grow. It’s calming. And in some hippie hippie way, it makes me feel like I’m contributing to something bigger than myself. There’s so much to learn about about planting and gardening and becoming a little more self sustaining. I love the idea of dinner made with fresh herbs, using essentials oils from plants I’ve grown myself and spending a little time each week playing in the dirt.
After doing some homework, I decided to plan my “garden” in containers. I love the visual opportunities it gives me to decorate my outdoor living space and it doesn’t take up any of my yard. I started with small plants instead of seeds because I figured it would be easier to keep them alive vs. grow them from tiny seeds. Although, when I become a gardening professional, I will definitely start with seeds. #Gardengoals
I love the smell of all the green. A little water and a little sunlight are the essential keys to life, as with all living things. We are kindred that way. I encourage everyone to try their hands at gardening. Nothing crazy, maybe just some flowers that make you smile. Set yourself up for success, look for plants that do well in your area.
