~*Friday's "Garden Gumption" Post!!*~
Post #1: Let the Gardening Begin!!
Well, Everyone...Here it is! The first of several "Garden Gumption" posts!! Every Friday, I plan on blogging about gardening -- whether it be about gardening tips and tricks, or about how my own indoor/outdoor gardens are progressing. If you're following these posts, I encourage you to comment and share your own thoughts, tips, or how you're own garden is doing! We can learn from each other and have fun doing it!
While the garden area was being created outside, I started planting a select bunch of seeds inside. After the seedlings grew, I planted them in square foot sections in my outdoor garden space. After some work and care over the course of last spring and summer, I was able to come out with a small harvest at the end of the season --- small, but pretty impressive for a 1st year, inexperienced gardener like myself.
If you are looking for a book about gardening, or are interested in finding creative ways to start your own garden no matter how little or large your gardening area might be, I recommend reading All New Square Foot Gardening: Grow More in Less Space! by: Mel Bartholomew. I found his book at my local library and rented it from their last year. I believe this year I will be purchasing it!
Well, I believe that is all I will be posting today. Enjoy your Friday, and don't forget to leave a comment below about any gardening tips, tricks or stories to share! Happy Gardening!!
