Square Foot Gardening for Beginners

Whoot whoot! I finally have my veggie garden getting up and growing! I might have mentioned already that my husband didn't share my enthusiasm for another try on my wildest projects: growing most of our own produce. He remembers all too well the gazillion times that I took on a veggie garden and then neglected it, even if there was good stuff to harvest. The good thing is that I do almost everything in pots, so it's fairly easy to clean up. And this year I can add to the list... ...more

After playing around with a few ideas and digging this frame we used in Brayden's old nursery out of the garage, I set my own heart on a heart-shaped collage of prints. I still love it every time I see it. It was pretty simple to put together once I got going. Here's the full rundown... ...more

Gardening Wisdom For Beginners or Non-Gardeners

When we bought our house I was full of gardening plans. We were going to grow all thing things! Yes! All of them. Then I realized that not only did I know very little about gardening, but it would also mean an never ending battle with the local wildlife. I settled for planting an herb garden and having a few small garden containers. This time of year I dream of large gardens and I find myself reading lots of gardening posts. At some point I may be willing to take on the challenge of gardening but for now I'm reading, dreaming and drinking in the wisdom of women who do it every year....more
