Gardening is Good for Your Health! Sharing my tips for staying healthy on Word by Word​

Word by Word

Gardening is Good for Your Health!

Even though we’re going through an unprecedented time, there are ways to enrich your mental and physical health.

Growing your own garden is beneficial to your well-being.

Fruits and vegetables picked fresh from the vine taste better, are nutritious, and gives intense satisfaction. You don’t need a lot of room to create a good food forest.

This is a 4×4 ft bed. It is home to a tree with five different varieties of apples, a peach tree, sage, oregano, thyme, lavender, strawberries, and blueberries.

The trick is to fertilize every two weeks and water regularly- not too hard, right?

This strawberry square is made with fresh berries from my yard.

Even if you don’t have room for a small garden, there are community plots in most cities. Caring for your own plants feeds your soul and is a healthy decision for your family…

  1. I love this, Jacquie! I wasn’t able to plant as much this year because I couldn’t go to the nurseries, but I’ve loved enjoying my perennials this summer and wish I had more fruit trees and berries (have already told you that!). ❤️

  2. Lovely, Jacquie! I do gardening every day. I started preparing the soil for my vegetable garden. The milkweeds seedlings are doing great and hopefully I’ll have a butterfly garden by next year. ❤

    1. I would love to get some milkweed! We have a Bush here called the butterfly 🦋 bush (not sure if that’s the real name) and they flock to it.

      1. I have a butterfly bush also but it’s still young. My neighbor has a much bigger pot and the butterflies love it.

    1. Do it, Jane! All of our plants are container grown, so even if you don’t have much space it’s possible. You’ll be so glad you did 😊

  5. Oh, I totally agree, Jacquie. Wonderful post. My flowers, veggies, and forest have brought such peace and solace during this strange and disorienting time. They keep me “grounded.” I love what you’ve done with your garden. There is something special about how nurturing mother nature nurtures us in return. A beautiful post. ❤

    1. You’re so right! There’s nothing better than inhaling the scent of moist soil and healthy plants. One of our favourites is rosemary. It’s so fragrant and great for cooking, too 😊
