Looking for a last minute gifts? Here’s an unusual idea…

Garden Recipes

In my experience fresh food really CAN be contagious… but jumping up and down waving fresh kale in people’s faces doesn’t really help people feel the joy of fresh food for themselves. That joy usually starts when someone experiences fresh-off-the-vine crisp flavors… and then the curiosity builds and they eat more… until eventually, they are hooked! And if they grow the food themselves, it usually speeds up the process. 😉

That’s what happened with me… I wasn’t always a garden fanatic.  It all started when my health took a mysterious downturn.

Watch this video to find out why and to discover a gift that could change the lives of your loved ones forever.

Long-term health and vitality is the best gift to give all the young people in your life.

The Garden Journal That Can Get Wet Without Smudging

Garden Hacks - Simplify routines

Have you ever noticed the big flaw with bringing important garden notes on paper outside as you work? Maybe you are writing down how much you harvested, or your soil fertility plan, or maybe you want to journal and draw your plants…Whatever it is, bringing paper into the garden is always a challenge with all the water and dirt. One minute you’re writing an important note, the next, your ink is smeared and your paper is wet and dirty.

Here at Grow Your Own Vegetables, we know that great record keeping is the key to improving your yields year after year. So Crystal tested out this cool waterproof journal for all of us.

We thought it would be a great gift idea for gardeners (and anyone else who journals outside, too)! But does it really work? Find out in this video review…

Grab your Stone Paper Notebook and don’t forget the Erasable Gel Pen that makes your journal not only waterproof but re-usable too!

Think about the young people in your life… what are their favorite foods?

Vegetables and chocolate?  Those have always been my two favorite foods since forever 😉

That’s great news, because vegetables ward off chronic diseases and nourish you for long-term vitality. And that’s why loving vegetable is a great legacy to pass on to the young ones in your life. When you inspire great eating habits in kids, you set up your young ones for a life of health and well-being. But how do you get kids excited about fresh food?

Check out these three simple things my parents did to make me the vegetable lover I am today and why they can work for you too.
