We’re all itchin’ to get outside after this very long winter! Here on the farm we are planting Christmas trees and getting the gardens ready for veggies and flowers. Have you started to think about what veggies you want to plant in your garden? I know you have! 😉 Along with your favorite plants, why not add some flowers?
Think about it: while you are harvesting your tomatoes you could be tip toeing through the tulips too. Well, maybe not tulips, but how about some annual flowers that you can cut and bring into your home or give away to friends and relatives or someone you know who could use a little lift in their day.
There is no denying it. The power of flowers is contagious!!
Here are a few reasons why planting flowers in your veggie garden is so very worthwhile:
- Most annual flowers are EASY to grow.
- The flowers will attract beneficial insects to your garden which will help with the pollination of your veggies! Yes, most insects are good!
- Gosh, having flowers in your garden could make the hard work of gardening fun!
- When you harvest your veggies (should be twice a week), harvest your flowers too! Keep them, or make someone’s day!
