Let Your Garden Grow

During these unique circumstances it's important to celebrate the simple things!  Much like you, we've had to shift gears. We've gone from entertaining hostess to finding ways to entertain our family and we've come up with some creative and fun ways to do so! 

With Spring in full bloom, a great way to spend time with the family (and taking in some fresh air and sunshine) is by planting some seeds and watching them grow! Even if you are in apartment you can still do some indoor gardening. Plant flowers or greenery to beautify your surroundings or vegetables and herbs to promote self-sustainable food stability!

Our baking cups are the perfect size to get your seeds started! The best part is, once the seeds have sprouted, you can plant the compostable cup directly in the soil!

According to The Spruce, the easiest flower to grow from seed are:

  • Bachelor's Button
  • Calendula
  • Columbine
  • Cosmos
  • Four O'Clocks
  • Marigolds
  • Morning Glories
  • Moss Rose
  • Nasturtiums
  • Shasta Daisies
  • Sunflowers
  • Sweet Alyssum
  • Sweet Peas
  • Zinnias

If veggies are more your thing, Southern Exposure says the following are the easiest vegetables to grow from seeds:

  • Lettuce
  • Peas
  • Radishes
  • Turnips
  • Beans
  • Sweet potato
  • Winter squash
  • Okra
  • Chard
  • Kale
  • Spinach

 

Don't have seeds for your veggies? Never fear! Buzzfeed has a list of veggies that you can grow from scraps such as:

  • Onions and leaks
  • Celery
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Romaine
  • Basil
  • Bok Choy
  • Carrots
  • Lemon Grass
  • Pineapples
  • Potatoes
  • Mushrooms

Whether it's flowers or vegetables, enjoy this time with the family and let a little hope bloom! Want some more fun activities to do with the family? Follow us on Instagram!
