Meet the New Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bars Discount & Giveaway! #SGSavvySnackerOne of my favorite on the go snacks are bars. Protein bars, fruit bars, you name it.

Happy Earth Day 2015!

We are celebrating this Earth Day by venturing into new, uncharted green living territory – gardening. I’m not talking planting some things outside and not using pesticides, but actual grow something to eat type gardening.

A little background on me. My grandmother has the greenest thumb I know. She had a garden that I helped her weed and harvest from. From as far back as I can remember she could grow anything from anything. Only have a leaf? No problem. She can turn it into a tree like some sort of superhero x-men. Me on the other hand. Give me a robust plant and I will give you back a shriveled up thing. Yeah it is that bad. 

But I have succumb to a positive peer pressure of wanting to have my own garden. What better month to get started than April? So here we go, come join the ride with me and send some positive vibes towards my plants.

To start your own yogurt cup garden:

  • High Mowing Organic Seeds
  • Yogurt Containers
  • Organic Potting Soil 
  • Water
  • Small Spoon/Shovel
  • Super Cute Baseball Hat is optional 

1. Fill the cup almost to the top with soil. Add water making it moist not soggy.

2. Place 2-3 seeds per container.

3. Cover with soil and find a nice sunny spot for your plants to grow.

Our yard is not ideal for a garden. Plus add to that 2 large dogs and it would be torn up within minutes. For now, we are keeping our seedlings in the kitchen window which gets a lot of sunlight. In a few weeks, hopefully, we will be on our way to our very first organic garden! 

For more tips see High Mowing Organic Seeds: Growing and Seed Saving Information and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

How do you celebrate Earth Day or live a greener life?
