When I think of gardening I think of Crisp greens, colorful fruits and vegetables, moist soil and the smell of herbs. I also think about the bright sunshine and how it sparkles off of the water droplets on the leaves.
Gardening to me personally is such a beautiful art. The different mesh of foods, flowers, and herbs. How they mix together and create a magical area of nutrition and beauty all in one space. I mean is it just me?
Definitely far from any Master in gardening but, I do love the task of digging in the dirt and watching the progression of growth with consistent work put in place. Its the neatest to have the ability to grow food and also grow herbs to create spices. All around it is something I know many admire wanting to learn or start. Perhaps even just have a area for your toddler so you can teach them how to grow and garden.
Well, I am at the stage where I am really preparing myself personally on the basics of general gardening with my toddler. She will be 2 years old and I really felt I should educate myself further and look into some options for simple ideas to start with. So I dug into Pinterest and found some Amazing boards I follow now. I really wanted to share the ones I favored the most and the boards I know I will be using and referring to as I learn more about Gardening with my daughter and Myself.
My New and First Succulent!
Top Inspired is a Highly ranked and viewed Pinterest account. Coming in at over 10 million views a month. They also have some exceptional leads on how to start all types of Vegetable and Fruit Gardens. Here is the link to the the Vegetable Gardening Board, which I personally follow and will be applying lots of these ideas once I start my Garden.
Joyce at Blissedhub has a fantastic array of choices that will help you with many different herbs and gardening tips to keep them flourishing and growing properly. Here you can find her Herbal Board that I follow. Herbs are also a great way to start the little’s one with gardening. You can do it any time of the year indoor and they don’t take up much space!
Gardening Channel has an absolutely amazing account for many types of gardening. But I personally favor their Floral board. The selection on their board offers the specifics for each Basic flower. You know, the ones that we normally think of right off the bat. I found it really helpful and simple.
Bless my Weeds is such a fun account! I adore her style and taste. The amount of options she has is amazing and they are all very well organized boards. She is a Gardening account only. Which I also love! This is her Fruit Garden Board which I follow and of course will be using her tips and tricks she shared.
Succulents and Sunshine is one of the most well maintained and organized account I have ever viewed. She is very clean with everything she applies on her boards. I personally just am getting started with succulents and I am so excited about it!

This account is going to be very helpful for me and answering many beginner questions at a easy access. You can find her Board that I follow Here, all about Succulent care and growth.
CREATING A SPACE
Jane Wu has a great Board for her pins creating the Garden space Ideas. I am really excited to implement some of these awesome ideas for when we build our space. Almost every idea was kid friendly in a way they can help and build. Which I found is going to be so awesome when our daughter is at the age to help. Here is the link to here Board I follow!
So there you have the 6 Gardening boards that I follow and will be using! Each board I shared I felt like collectively can create a beautiful space. Vegetable, Fruits, Herbs, Succulents, and Flowers. The combination cannot be denied when all put together and placed properly to create a space of color and freshness. Not all spaces need to be fancy, expensive or complicated. The kids can be apart of every item planted and can help build any of the spaces! A very exciting time to be teaching such an educational and valuable skill to our children. Even ourselves!
I hope you found some of these boards as helpful as I did. Please leave any comments on what you’ve found helpful or even tried personally.
Thanks for Reading!
