Our Miracle-Gro Gro-ables Update: Indoor/Outdoor Garden11:49 PM
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro Gro-ables. All opinions are 100% mine.
It's now officially time to plant here in Nebraska, and we are headed out this week (once storms pass) to place the remaining Miracle-Gro Gro-ables from our kit into the ground. As we had shared earlier, we did plant a few in our indoor greenhouse inside some pots, and those will be transplanted at a later date.
The great thing about the Gro-ables, is that you usually do not need to mess with pots at all! You simply put them into the ground, water, and watch them become beautiful garden plants within weeks! Since we have a colder climate here, however, we did decide to plant a few indoors. The tomato plants are doing very well! It will just be a matter of time before we can enjoy home-grown goodies like cucumbers, tomatoes, and fresh herbs grown from our Miracle-Gro Gro-ables.
Did you order one of the kits? What are you most excited about? I'm particular eager to see the peppers, eggplant, and tomatoes mature and produce. Besides these kits being a great way to get those with no experience gardening a perfect start, they are great for planting with kids. What a great family project it can be to garden together!
My kids garden every year, and some of the things they have learned is:
- how to care for the natural resources we are given here on the farm
- the science of the plant life-cycle
- the best fruits and veggies for our climate
- the reward of hard work through weeding, watering, and harvesting
- how delicious home-grown fruits and veggies can be
- how to prepare various veggies, especially finding unique ways to eat the abundance that can occur from over-producers like squash and zucchini
