Maybe you remember last year when me, Ben, and David set out to be “gardeners”? All that hard work we put into setting up the 2-tier garden, tilling, loving, sweating, cussing…yeah, well, we gotta’ MOVE it. haha Aaaahhhh!
Ben and I have been attending gardening classes, where we learned everywhere we went wrong, and that was a lot of places. We knew last year when our garden didn’t really take off, it was mostly due to location. But now we know it was several things, like buying your seedlings from “big box” stores instead of starting your own, or buying them from a local farmer that sells them. Also, good soil, that it be very aerated, and not compact. Non clay/rock like, which is what we were dealing with. AND knowing what to plant for your area, and WHEN to plant it.
Hey Texas people, did you know that you don’t plant cilantro in the spring or summer? Most people think you do, because they think of tomatoes, and summer salsa. Well, guess what? It’s a fall herb – who knew!? Same for dill and parsley. We’ve learned so much during our 2-class series, and we’re going to continue to take more classes. We’re mapping out our garden now, and starting our OWN seedlings! Check out the seed packets, soil, and cell greenhouse we got as our starter kit. It’s everything we need to start our new garden: snap beans, chard, lemon cucumbers, mesclun lettuce mix, peppers, radishes, summer squash, and celebrity and sun gold cherry tomato varieties! I can’t wait!
I’m actually going to container garden on my balcony as well with basil, rosemary, tomatoes, and lettuces and micro greens in my micro garden containers.
