The sunny and warm weather always prompts me to dust off my gardening tools and start planning this years placement for my vegetable plants and flowers. When each new grow season begins, I like to keep up to date with the latest innovative gardening tools and accessories, to help better manage my time (I like to barbecue and have fun on Saturdays and Sundays after all). Each season I also challenge myself to accomplish more in a day than I did the prior season. Listed below are three products that I believe are worthwhile to add to my gardening collection this year.
Yard Work & Gardening
When I was a young girl my father had a huge backyard garden. I didn’t understand the big appeal of the garden back then, mostly because I had to spend so many weekends in the hot sun helping to pull weeds! My Dad always had a great yield of tomatoes, cucumbers and other delicious greens.
One day last year on a whim, I decided to start my own little vegetable garden. I wanted to do something outdoors so that I would have more of an excuse to enjoy the sunshine instead of staying inside all of the time in front of a computer screen. I knew absolutely nothing about gardening, so I winged it mostly.
I remember my parents always planting such beautiful flowers in the spring. I mostly enjoyed watching the flowers grow from seedlings to mature plants. The colors are still vividly present in my memories. I recently decided that I was going to plant spring flowers of my own as a sort of an homage to my parents. I wanted to grow the flowers from quality seeds, so I decided to do some research on Amazon to find the most beautiful flowers to plant that would enhance my small garden. Here are the three that I found:
If you are like me and enjoy preparing homemade meals with fresh herbs, a mini greenhouse will allow you to have fresh herbs at your finger tips! With this small greenhouse in your home, you can grow your herbs year round.
Gardeners, for years have been utilizing large outdoor greenhouses to grow a variety of plants, herbs and vegetables year round. So, it just makes sense to have a mini greenhouse inside your home that can be used for the same purpose. I particularly, enjoy growing basil, parsley, dill, rosemary, cilantro and thyme.
Feeding yourself and/or a family healthy produce is very challenging, these days. The worst, is that the cheaper the food, the more unhealthy it is for you. With the prices of quality produce consistently on the rise, growing your own produce has become popular by demand. The only question you must ask yourself is what kinds of produce do you and your family consume and enjoy the most. Once that question is answered you now know what to grow in your produce garden.
I personally like knowing exactly where my vegetables came from. When I visit my local supermarket, I have absolutely no idea where there produce comes from and what kind of soil and fertilizers were used to grow it. I don’t know about you but this gives me the “willies.” More people are now eating healthier and smarter. What would be better than having a garden full of wholesome vegetables in your backyard?
