My husband gave me a hyacinth last week for our anniversary. I’ve enjoyed watching it sit in its sunny little window space, mostly because I think it gives me hope. Hope that this winter will END, the snow will melt and we can get out into our garden and grow!! In the next few months and throughout the summer, we will be sharing with you what we grow and how we grow it. It will be a good place for the newbie gardener to learn how to grow some simple food. We don’t use special technique or expensive equipment. A lot of what we do is seed-in-the-ground and water type gardening so anybody can join in. We grow organically.
Here’s a list of what we plan on growing:
Red Bell Pepper
Sugar Snap Peas
I had a reader ask about container gardening vegetables. While it is entirely possible to grow almost everything in a container, the thing to look out for is container type. I would recommend NOT using terra cotta pots for growing vegetables. They tend to draw all the moisture from your soil and you will find yourself needing to water more than once a day when it gets real hot.
I found this book when browsing Amazon. While I have not actually read it myself, it looks like one of the better ones.
