Gardening for the Fall Months

Earlier this year, I have fallen in love with plants. I have several indoor plants and a few outdoor plants for the porch of my apartment. It’s been so interesting to read about them, learn how to take care of them, and watch them grow!

This can be a fun opportunity to teach your kids (and yourself) about plants!


Fall is here and every season brings new strengths and challenges. As this season continues, we encourage you to consider studying up and beginning to garden. You might not have land to garden outside of your home – that’s okay! I’m still learning so much about it in an apartment with no yard space at all. Do what you can with what you have!
