I’ve got a new post for all you gardeners out there, over at Keeper of the Home. Enjoy!
I’m not much of a gardener, but over the last few years, I’m been attempting a little bit more each summer. It started three summers ago when I planted just a few things in a small bed in the back yard. A friend of mine had been gardening for years, and she came over and helped me figure out what to do when. My backyard was too shady for things to grow well, but it was a good start for this novice.
By the next summer, we had moved to a new home. I now have a larger yard with plenty of sunshine. Someone recommended that I try “lasagna gardening,” so early in the spring we began preparing our ground. Our first garden came up so nicely, and I felt like the best gardener ever.
This year our weather has been totally different, and I tried growing plants from seed rather than transplants. Sadly, my garden doesn’t look as good at this point. Maybe I’m not the best gardener ever. (Maybe I need to read some more books!)
