Simplify the Season

Winter Solstice is December 21st and Wednesday will be the shortest day of the year with the least amount of light. In honor of the solstice, I am hoping to slow down and let myself start reflecting on the last year through writing, nature and limited access to the Internet. This has been a rough year for many of us (me included) because of what is happening in the United States and abroad. As I attempt to be mindful of the changing season, I hope to start thinking about what I can give back to my community, friends and family.

Gardening with Kids

If the daffodils, cherry blossoms, and tulips sprouting everywhere didn’t convince you, then last weeks’ beautiful warm weather must have shown that spring is officially here. And what’s a better way to spend spring outside than gardening? I may only have a balcony with container planters instead of a yard with a garden, but I’m still itching to plant tomatoes, carrots, and green beans. While it may still be a bit early for planting vegetables, it’s not too early to start preparing your garden—and your little gardener—for what’s to come.
