I haven't made much progress in growing. I would have liked to have a huge garden by now of all kinds of goodies - veggies, ornamentals, trees. We've only ever grown little things in ugly plastic containers. I'd like to change my attitude and gain some more hands on experience, but there aren't very many classes where I am. I just wish I had a friend who could show me what to do, as gardening is not very easy to me. Perhaps I try to make it way more complicated than it has to be. Perhaps i just…See More

Live in the city, but want a garden with limited space?

I love finding and sharing solutions that people have created to overcome the obstacles that would otherwise keep them from providing for themselves and their families in a healthy manner.    Here is a link that I was inspired to post by a new member Cristina Elizabeth Rice Savina, whose living situation requires some creative thought.  Here's a great link to some urban gardening techniques.  It's easier than one might think and can be fun for kids to be involved with as well!  Here's the…See More

Hanging Herb Garden - Other than some cool pics and a "how to make it" flavor, this blog seems long and boring, but that's really just me ruining an interesting premise with my rambling...
