Quick Tip: Try Seed Planting With a Hula Hoop

Have you ever used a kids toy to plant seeds?  It might be worth a try!  While out in the garden planting rainbow chard and spinach I used a hula hoop as a planting aid.  Inside the hula hoop I planted the rainbow chard and in the outside ring I planted spinach.  When the plants sprout and begin to grow they should create a beautiful edible arrangement!

I’ll update you on the circular raised bed’s progress when we have growth!

(Please excuse the mess! I simultaneously plant seeds and clean up the garden from the winter as I go! the cardboard is there to kill off winter weeds until I can cover the area with mulch for the year.)
