How to grow a petting garden (sponsored)
Are you familiar with Go Mighty? Go Mighty is a place to build your Life List, and to participate in a community of people who are all reaching for their goals.
Go Mighty works with sponsors to support certain goals, and I am the fortunate recipient of one of these grants.
I took the opportunity to follow through on an idea that hatched about five years ago...to grow a garden based on soft, strokable plants, a. k. a. a petting garden.
If your kids are as attracted to soft, fuzzy things as mine were at that age (and still are), you will love this easy garden project...perfect for a summer afternoon.
Thank you to all on Twitter and Facebook who gave me "pettable" plant suggestions. Pictured above is Lamb's Ear, which was your top pick (by a landslide). Thanks also to Lori Vollmer, co-owner of my favorite nursery Garden Fever, who helped me with plant selection.
