Did you try planting a half barrel or other container last month?
Yes, it's been a whole month since I last posted because I've been incredibly active growing my gardens (and believe you me I have more than one!).
Well, if you didn't get to it just yet, let me share some good news with you. It's not too late! You can still plant up a container garden and enjoy the fruits of your labor in no time at all.
Go back and listen to my last vlog post for step by step directions and more inspiration to get your creative gardening juices flowing!
I'm glad you asked!
Local nurseries and garden centers are fantastic places to locate great materials. Often, these suppliers will carry unique, organic vegetables, herbs and flowers. Here on Long Island, Agway is a good source for quality plant materials but there are definitely more options if you...
It has been an incredible week. The temperature rose about 30 degrees. We went from below normal to well above average. With these extreme fluctuations in weather becoming more prevalent, it reinforces me to pay attention to garden principles that benefit our way of life.
Speaking of which, I got up to the nursery this week and picked up some gorgeous vegetables, herbs and annuals.
And I created a lovely half barrel container garden!
I think you're going to love it.
And to help you, I also created a pdf download of instructions on how to create this beauty including supply and materials list, and care and maintenance.
So check out the video and make sure you print out those directions!
It was so much fun to put together! My youngest daughter helped record and even though I have a lot of kinks to work out :-) my heart is to help all of you to eat and feel better!
