Gardeners have some OPINIONS. I asked my trusty community (that’s you!!) to send help–it was actually an S.O.S, hah!–in growing a small herb and veggie garden. Not only did y’all deliver, but I got some hilariously conflicting advice…ranging in everything from direction of planting (North vs. South? East vs. West?!) to which flowers ward off critters and bugs best and though I am definitely a bit overwhelmed by the suggestions, I’m also SUPER thankful for the support!! Gardening is becoming a really cathartic thing for me, and I love teaching Leni about where our food comes from! I’ve compiled 10 tips I’ll be following and using as a first-time gardener; I’m NO expert but I believe trial and error to be extremely useful research, so here goes nothing!!
I am getting really excited by the idea of fresh garden salsa in late summer, but I’m definitely thinking a TON of the things I try this spring and summer will be a bit of an experiment in beginner gardening. Either way, I love making these memories for Leni–and if we get a few good tomatoes out of it, it will have been worth it.
If you have tips for the novice gardener (me!! ME!!!) drop them in the comments below!! New blogs coming in HOT!
