I love gardening, flowers and always have love to work with flowers. Since my husband died I have been trying to learn everything I can about gardening and his good friend is helping me. We are turning the garden under Sunday that is done. I have started to grow veggies in my garage in pots and I am having fun. Have to keep them going and having a little trouble, I am going to start seeds inside and then transplant. I love doing this and I will eat healthy during winter if it works. Love Spark.
I love to garden and I have found gardening has played a huge part in reaching my goals. Growing a garden is a lot of physical work and it gets me outside. I really enjoy growing my own salads, I know there are no harmful chemicals involved and taking my basket out to snitch leaves off my lettuce, spinach and chard is a stress free, relaxing, thankful experience. If you don't have enough land for a garden you can use containers on your patio or just set a pot outside anywhere. 436
Winter is a bleak and depressing time for me so I have learned how to grow cherry tomatoes and strawberries in my big sunny windows. Food can be fun and healthy!
I have started a herb garden in addition to my veggie garden[with flowers outlining it!] and since my hubby mulched the herb garden for me, those weeds are being stifled and much LESS showing UP! So, it's off to the garden supply store to get mulch for the rest of the veggie garden now! Am planning to show photos in my gallery of the gardens as they progress!The mulching also SAVES WATER as it helps to keep the ground moist so LESS WATER is needed!
