Are you planting your bare root trees and bushes all wrong? EEK! We take a lot of time to select the trees and bushes we plant and then even more time to plant them. That is an awful lot of work to only lose them because we failed to plant them properly.
Today we are going over 6 steps to properly plant bare root trees, and various reasons you have not had success with trees in the past (besides your goats getting in your garden and eating them!).
Have you ever grown celery before? Celery can be a little tricky, but I'm going to share a few tips with you today.
I'm also planting cauliflower and Pak Choi. We aren't growing kohlrabi or broccoli this year, but if we were, now would be the time to start them as well.
It is time for week 2 of "What I'm Planting". This week I'm planting cabbage. We do things a little different with cabbage and all brassicas, we use soil blocks.
Ah, soil blocks, I am so grateful for you! You are so affective, and the way you reduce the use of plastic is spot on!
Container gardening has been one of my biggest requests for blog/guide posts. Although I have touched on it here and there, I have never done a full guide. Today is the day my friends! About time right!?
Today we are going to go through everything you need to know to grow a successful container garden. As a little bonus, I've created a DIY potting soil recipe printable just for you! Add it to your garden planner for a handy reference.
Seed starting season is upon us! We now have a little glimmer of spring!
What seeds you are starting now depends on where you live. I thought it would be fun, and I thought you may find it interesting and helpful to see what and when I start our seeds. I don't start seeds every week, but as we get closer to spring I will be planting more and more. So here is my first week of planting.
Follow along with this little series of blogs to see what we're planting, when we pot up, and little planting tips along the way.
Have you heard of the Micro Tom tomato? It is the smallest tomato plant, and it produces normal size cherry tomatoes in abundance! As in there are more tomatoes than leaves almost.
It is the cutest thing and even cuter in person. The pictures just don't do it justice.
Have you ever had homemade marshmallows? These are nothing like the store bought jet puffed versions available in the store. No, these are far better than that. They are the perfect addition to that hot coco or chai latte that we enjoy so much in this cooler fall weather, especially while looking at seed catalogs!
Do you know anyone who doesn't cook with garlic? Me neither. Those plump garden grown cloves help season most all of our meals.
How do we store them all through fall and winter? Well this year I've tried something new and I am so, so, so happy I did!
If you're keen to enjoy the benefits of an organic garden, it's only natural that your first thoughts will revolve around the plants you want to grow. In reality, though, this way of life extends to a far wider range of issues. Consequently, then, only a comprehensive strategy can unlock the desired results.
When the first hints of fall make their appearance I'm torn between baking, gardening, canning, and sitting down with a good book and a cup of hot tea. The hot tea thing, that doesn't actually happen. That is just one of the things I would like to do. We are far too busy come harvest for any of that. I bet you are in the same boat so let me introduce you to canning parties.
