  • Love my garden - just need to spend more time on it!
  • Nothing beats your own fresh from the garden~tomato ,green bean or watermelon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!
  • Panting a garden is my goal for next season. I just got some blueberry bushes from a friend at church to start my garden. I have some lemon seeds growing inside now. I am fixing to plant herbs in my kitchen window. Plans are laid out.
  • Starting my gardens this week. Going to plant by the moon this year. Wish me luck!!!
  • nothing beats fresh picked
  • My get up and go never got up for this activity.
  • Can't wait for my garden and then the fruit of it.
  • I cant wait to be able to plant and get the garden growing. Wet weather is slowing it u but I crave those fresh veggies.
  • Can't wait for spring to get here so I can start my seeds!
  • One huge advantage of even trying to grow your own food (at least I hope so):

    it might stomp down that horrible, dreadful habit of squeezing fresh fruit/veggies in the shop and then all but throwing it back into the food stall.

    Sounds like a minor detail?

    That produce will be bruised an hour later, so of course no one will buy it. So it gets thrown away, which is a waste of resources and pushes up the price (the vendors have to make up for all the food they can't sell).

    I don't think anyone who learned up close and personal how much work goes into produce would do that again. Or at least I hope so. In my experience: I'm a lot less likely to throw away strawberries from my own window box because of one little spot.

    Quick tip for gardeners:
    One big pot (or even bucket) filled with earth, one potato into it. Add water & sun (and maybe a little loam or fertilizer). Once the plant has grown and wilted, turn the pot over onto a tarp. Collect a 1000 to 2000% dividend on your investment. (Depends on how large the pot was.)
  • I'm so over growing things, the last few years if the bugs do not ruin my garden the weird changes in the weather do a lot of hard work with very little reward, I will go to farmer markets and let them do all the hard work.
  • I have recently began my own personal garden at home with garlic and onion bulbs. For the first time I realize that not only are they much more economical, but they are also so much stronger.
