Granex Yellow Onions – Planted January 1st, 2013
One of the things I want to be better at this year is documenting my garden in real time, from start to finish. A sort of photographic journey as I plant, sow, and harvest my backyard bounty.
I think so many times when we read books and magazines on how to garden, it seems so overwhelming. All we really want is someone to reach out from behind the pages and give us a helping hand. To show us HOW TO DO IT, and not just tell us how. And that my friends, is what I hope to accomplish this year with all these silly little garden updates and pictures of mine.
Green Globe Improved & Purple Romagna Artichoke – Planted January 4th, 2013
Like I’ve said many times before, I am not an expert, just some crazy lady who really enjoys gardening and has the space to do it. So if you find yourself in the comment section, and you know the answer, please, jump in and help us out if you can.
Valentine Mesclun Lettuce – January 8th, 2013
Because with each others help, I think we can all have a successful garden, no matter what the size this year. I don’t know about you, but I am counting down the days until the heirloom tomatoes start to roll in.
Homemade salsa here we come!
In it to win it baby! This year is going to be awesome!
For those of you who have wondered how I am able to start my seeds so early, I have been using the Hydrofarm 4-Foot Jump Start T5 Grow Light System. I purchased 2 sets off Amazon.com at the beginning of the 2012 growing season, and my ability to start healthy seedlings has forever changed. I used to start my seedlings in the family room next to the window, and I had some success with it, but from here on out, I am totally sold on grow lights. I love them, and totally recommend them.
