Gardening is a rewarding and fruitful endeavor. Getting started is not as difficult as one would think. You can be creative and make a self watering garden that will allow for stress free work cultivating fruit. You can also grow in containers and other non-traditional sources of growing, so if you do not have access to an outdoor space, you can still grow some produce. Gardening does not have to be expensive as well. With some tricks such as harvesting your own dirt and mulch, paying attention to what you are planting and when, and being aware of harvesting, you can grow produce without wasting money. You can save big if you learn how to plant and harvest for the seasons. Gardening year round is a great way to insure that you have food for the upcoming seasons that is not only nutritious but tasty. You can use your produce year round and reap the savings.

Let’s see… Keep Reading
We got home from Texas late last week. Hooray! Waiting for us as we walked in the door though were bucketloads of tomatoes from our 200+ plants. I’m so happy our tomato plants are doing well this year! Last year we didn’t properly amend our pitiful soil and the poor plants didn’t do well at Keep Reading
Summer’s here! Okay so, maybe not quite. But it’s hot outside, and gardens are going strong…. And they’re full of bugs. What’s the organically minded gardener to do? The last thing we want is to spray pesticides that make the produce unfit to eat. Here are a few of our summer bug Keep Reading
Spring is here(yay!), and as always, I’m looking for ways to make our budget stretch a little farther. Food is expensive. Even more so if you choose organic. One of the best and most obvious ways to reduce that expenditure this time of year is through gardening. If you’re new to gardening, it can Keep Reading
