My youngest daughter wants to start a garden this year. She was asking me how to go about it & when I got done she said that perhaps just growing carrots this year was what she should do...
I told her it took me longer to tell her than to do it.

I love how things that go around come around. Who would have ever thought that my Emily would ever put in a garden. shewinks

while I was out today I bought some lettuce & carrot seed and some asparagus plants for her. I hope that she has the patience for the asparagus. When it is time, I will buy her a tomato plant or 2 and a cucumber plant.

She wants a raised bed...we shall see what happens.

If she wants healthy organics to feed her family, that is the way to go. Congratulations, Carol.

She wants to plant potatoes but in a column. I do so hope that goes well for her. I am thinking of telling her to just use a modified trash can. she would have to dump them all out at once, but hey, there are worse things.

She can plant potatoes right into the soil bags you can buy as well.

I sent Emily the information..BUT

They found out that she "thinks" that gardens are not allowed in their subdivision....
So, I am thinking container gardening is the way to go for her.

So, tonight I went to e-bay & bought her 4 gardening books, that should be here by her birthday (April 25th)

One on Gardening Secrets
One on vegetable gardening
& 2 on Container Gardening

these should help her out, and she will also get some money...

thanks Tina.
It could go either way, but hey, at least it is a useful gift. (she appreciates useful and/or consumable gifts)
