simple is beautiful

Our Front Yard Garden (almost) a Year Later

Wednesday, June 29, 2016










This summer my mornings consist of early walks and lots of time in the garden.  As much as I enjoy blogging I've been embracing time away from the computer to the fullest. Gardening is one of the most rewarding hobbies.  Planting and nurturing a living object and watching it grow is an amazing experience to me.  It takes a lot of trial and error - sometimes things work and sometimes they don't for whatever reason.  Lucky for us we've had a good bit of rain since we planted our front yard garden and installed our cobblestone sidewalk almost a year ago.  Everything is well established (growing like crazy) and green.  A couple of gardening tips:  1)  Amend the soil before you plant.  2) Add osmocote, a slow release fertilizer, each time you plant a new plant.  It lasts 3 months and never burns.  2)  I spray all of the new plants, flowering plants, and vegetable garden once a week with Miracle Grow and this feeder that easily attaches to the garden hose.  I believe those things have made the biggest difference in the health of the plants.  Do you have any gardening tips?
