Weekend Gardening Inspiration

Saturday, March 6th, 2021

In our last post we talked about how to create a basic garden plan or outline, as well as how to make lists that will help us think through the process of ordering seeds and supplies. By now, some of you are probably already beginning to start your own seeds, others are ordering seeds and plants and cuttings, and some may still be in the planning phase.

Your lists are long and your hopes high, so while we wait [patiently] for spring to arrive, we are sharing several links for your inspiration and/or practical garden needs. Listen to an Interview with Paul Gautschi about what he calls the Back to Eden gardening Method. Find a raised bed for your lettuce or cilantro or sweet potatoes on a shop from Etsy. Another shop owner named Justin makes planter tables that are waist height for those who find it difficult to bend over to garden. (early Mother’s day gifts anyone? )

Whatever you are planning to grow this year, remember to make it fun. Be flexible, laugh, try new things, and don’t hesitate to invite all available hands to help with planting and watering and weeding and harvesting. Pro tip: keep ice cream bars or mint tea on hand to treat the hard workers to later!


Here is a fun apartment gardening tutorial that is exciting us this week:    https://www.thespruce.com/apartment-gardening-for-beginners
