I’m sharing all the benefits today over at Live Creatively Inspired.

      I learned a new term Liz, so thanks! Plus, I didn’t know about this feature of marigolds either – so thank you big-time for your comment!

    ‘Aren’t marigolds the first plant we all did? I know I planted one for Mother’s Day in my first grade class….a long time ago!

      You’re probably right, Kim! I remember thinking how cool it was that the seeds are right there in the dried-up flower head!

    This is something my mother always did so I know it works. She had a huge veggie garden every summer. One of the reasons I love to garden came from her. Unfortunately the sunny spots are in my front yard so I don’t grow too many edibles, mostly ornamental flowers and shrubs. Still, I think this is a great tip.

    hi Laura your garden is beautiful! It makes me want one so bad. I live in southwest fl. Zone 10 when would I plant corn and pumpkins to harvest in time for Halloween?
