Lessons in Simple Parenting

As you simplify life the laws of the universe will become simpler. - Henry David Thoreau

For the last few years (ok, more like six), I’ve been trying to read and finish the book Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne and Lisa M. Ross. It’s about simplifying you and your child’s life for the better.

Spoiler alert! I’m sharing the best lessons in simple parenting that I learned from this book.

I did, and year after year they’ve done good or bad depending on the weather. Since then I’ve planted many different Summer gardens with various types of fruit and vegetables and today I’m sharing some of my favorite easy to grow garden plants with you.
