This weekend, Wisconsin Public Television hosts the 2014 Garden Expo at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison. If you're in the Dane County area, you should check it out- It's worth a visit just to be surrounded by green, growing things at this bitter time of year. It's a nice reminder that Spring will eventually return!
One way to get a sneak peek at Spring with your kids is to start a home herb garden. Many garden centers already have seeds in stock for this year, and kids are always fascinated by the process of growing things! Get some paints and small terracotta pots and you'll have a fun, decorative and useful mini indoor herb garden before you know it!
