Let's talk "Gardening" for a bit, shall we???
I have to say, I pretty much stink at keeping something alive- other than my kids. I feel like babies being born with the ability to cry is some sort of divine design- like God knew a crying baby would be the only way I'd remember to feed and change my kids. If my plants would cry, they'd have a better shot at living- just sayin'.
But this fall, I'm ready to be inspired by master gardener William Moss and his team of Gardenieres It's time I did something with those planters that line the boundaries of my backyard. (Can you even call plots of dirt "planters" or are they just called "plots of dirt" after going unused for 7 years?)
The Gardenieres will be inspiring all of us to get out and garden and to face our growing challenges. They'll chat online through various social media outlets and may even visit your neighborhood. Their goal is to make this the most enjoyable growing season ever!
I like this video from Gareniere Coach Dave, who gives a 3 minute explanation about choosing a soil and how to build a raised bed for your garden. (I have a raised planter, now I just need to know the best ways to use it!)
I am also excited to learn more from Teena's project of creating an edible garden- I'd love to have a place to grow my family's favorite fruits and vegetables. And I love that this project can be done just a little bit at a time- I don't need to master gardening to get some herbs to grow.
In many of these projects, the Gardenieres mention using Miracle-Gro® products to help your plants growth throughout the fall. This is exciting for me, to know that my plants will get the extra nutrients they need… and they won't have to have an audible cry like my babies do! My plants will be fed for up to 3 months with Miracle-Gro® Continuous Release Plant Food. It is specially formulated for annuals, perennials, and vegetables and improves existing soil to build strong roots. Sounds good to me!
