This week April has started and Spring is on its way! The past couple of weeks of Spring have been a little shaky, and unpredictable, but nevertheless warmer weather is on its way. With longer days and more sun, now is the perfect time to start thinking about starting a garden that you can enjoy now and throughout the summer. You can grow a variety of pretty flowers, either annuals or perennials, or you could try your hand at growing your own tomatoes this summer. Growing your own garden, whether flower, vegetable, herb, or a combination of the three can be both a fun hobby and a secure source of fresh and organic produce. I can’t think of a better summer treat than juicy garden tomatoes on a fresh salad! Gardens can be a lot of work, but gardening is a rewarding hobby that many people enojoy and many families do together throughout the spring and summer months.
