Grow Your Own Superfoods at Home

I am a huge veggie and fruit addict. I've wanted to have my own garden for years, but have just never gotten started on it. 
This Sow & Grow Seed Starter Kit that I received last week to review is a good way to get into it. 

No automatic alt text available.

This is the Superfood Seed Starter Kit. It comes with seeds for leeks, brussels sprouts, kale, and beets. Biodegradable pots, markers for labeling each pot, and expandable soil discs are also included, along with a very helpful instruction guide.
It's good for beginners because the guide walks you step by step, telling you when to sow, germination time, and where to plant. 

Since I homeschool my kids I thought that this would be a nice science project for us all to work on together. 
They're as excited as I am. 
We started with the beets. It was fairly easy to do. I only wanted to start on one, so that I can make sure we are doing everything correctly. As soon as I see this one sprouting, I plan on starting on the others. 

Here's what we did:

First we soaked the seeds overnight in warm water, like the manual said to do. Those are beet seeds! I'd never seen what they looked like before, so that was pretty interesting. 

This is the expandable soil disc that we placed in a bowl. We poured 122 degree water on it, as instructed.

It was actually pretty cool watching it expand to several times its original size.

We let it cool and broke it apart inside of one of the biodegradable pots.

We tossed the seeds into the soil.

We covered with more of the soil and then stuck the marker in it. We made sure to include the date so that we can germinate in 5-12days and then follow the rest of the instructions. Eventually this plant will be transported outdoors. 

I can't wait to see them grow. The next ones we will start on are the brussels sprouts.
By the way, brussels sprouts and kale are my two most favorite veggies in the world!

We all had fun working together on this.
I think that getting your children involved in projects like this is a great way to teach them about where certain foods come from and introduce new foods, as well as encourage them to eat more healthy foods since they are the ones growing them. 

I've included my video review as well:

They also have other kits available with different fruits, veggies, and flowers!

Can I ask you a question? Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you thought “no” — You are not alone.

Appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain are all regulated by your ECS and can become imbalanced.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new. Now, to get to the new, and past the terrible process of moving, here are my packing hacks. Label everything! Unless you’
