    Gardening Is Relaxing But So Rewarding

    Hello. I sit eagerly all winter for spring too arrive. The new sprouting's from your bulbs you planted the year prior, start showing themselves as they slowly creep out of the soil. It always makes me feel good too stand on my deck and look at how pretty the yard and flower beds...

    Gardening Anywhere ...

    I am enjoying my gardening, even tho I'm living in a rented house. Lots of my plants are in containers, as I have this (NOT deluded) notion that I am gonna be able to buy (share ?) a house, and plant the stuff in the ground. Just about everything grows better in the ground...

    Urban Garden

    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.

    Love Getting My Hands Dirty

    As an adult, I have always had a garden. I can grow marvelous plants anywhere, even in the hot, dry, desert sun. When I lived in California I had a Japanese themed garden that filled my yard. In Las Vegas I had a square foot raised garden bed where I supplemented...

    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...

    Hard to Beleive!
