Gardening with your child can help them learn responsibility, observe the life cycle, and appreciate the literal fruits of their labor.

Allergy season is in full swing in most parts of the country; turning cars a peculiar shade of green, causing Kleenex stocks to rise and giving allergy sufferers a wide range of uncomfortable symptoms. Allergies can cause sneezing, wheezing, coughing, headaches and worse but they shouldn’t keep you from enjoying your garden. Instead, re-evaluate your garden, replacing allergy-causing plants with those that will not contribute to your symptoms and redesign your gardening routine and habits.
