You can have a tiny adventure in your backyard…literally. I love to go on adventures, travel, explore, discover new places, and try new activities. However, day to day I am centered where I live. With work, family, pets, a home, and responsibility, how can I explore nature every day in my own backyard?
Grow a garden! Plant some seeds, watch them grow, change, and flourish. It is exciting to witness the miracle of nature on a small scale. It’s an adventure you can visit every day. It all starts with digging in the earth, and planting some seeds. You patiently wait each day for the tiny growth to emerge from the soil. Once the sprouts are out, you continue to watch them grow into a mature plant. If you planted herbs or vegetables, you even get to take them inside to enjoy with you dinner.
The fast time-lapse videos never get old. They are always exciting to see nature unfold. But with a garden, you get to witness this in real time. Watch the story unfold on nature’s own time. A garden also gives you something to unwind with, reflect, see life bigger than your own.
