    We Need To Put In The Effort

    We reap what we sow. How true it is. If we take the time to invest in something useful the rewards are there to reap. The reward may not be monetary but can be very pleasurable. I spend time in my garden, spring, summer, autumn or winter. They like us need care. I love my...

    No tiller- just a shovel & sore shoulders today!

    Been living here 4 months & it's time to prepare the earth for next Spring. It's amazing how the feel & smell of the dirt can help heal the mind. :-)

    Okay, I am not sure I like gardening,

    but I think I will. I have always lived in a city pretty much and not much opportunity to have a garden or grow much. I did house sit for a friend who had a garden and took care of watering and taking care of her tomatoes and I enjoyed it. I am not living somewhere with some...

    Slugs

    I have come to the conclusion that slugs are Mother Nature's tax collectors. After all it's her dirt, her rain, her sun, and ultimately, it was her seeds. She's just trying to recoup expenses by getting her share. That being said though, I hate paying taxes.

    Hard to Beleive!

    I remember as a kid enjoying the garden with my mother.  She had a real green thumb and I so enjoyed seeing things grow.  As a young man, in my first house, I had a small garden, but when I moved, I never had a garden again until last year. I have a huge garden...

    Urban Garden
