The hardest part of gardening, I think, is just getting started. It isn’t always easy to know what and when you should be doing things. That is why I have compiled these resources to help you plan and sustain your garden.
I hope it is finally warm where you are. It was definitely a cold winter, and I think it has us all looking forward to spring and seeing a little green. If being cooped up all winter has dreaming of days where you can play in the dirt, you aren’t alone. We definitely have the gardening bug around here.
I’m in no way an expert, I’m learning right along with you. My husband and I are always trying to expand out gardening knowledge, and the more we learn the more we love it. It’s super rewarding to plant what was a little seed, to weeks later see lettuce ready for harvest. Our son loves to get involved in the garden activities, and as a result I feel like he eats a lot more veggies. Even when he was very young it was impossible for a cucumber to make it inside without a big bite mark, and grape tomatoes disappeared off the vine like it was candy. It is an incredible feeling to know where your food came from, and what was used to get it there. For the frugal family it’s definitely the most affordable way to get organic vegetables on the table.
