Summer Gardening: Easier than you think!

Summer Gardening

Hello everyone,

Ah, progress. There is no better feeling than making progress on a project that takes your time, energy and true dedication. In February, I planted 100 little seedlings. I didn’t think there was any chance that anything would come of them—I don’t have a very green thumb. Summer gardening has never been my forté.

But I was wrong. Very wrong. Two heating pads, many sprinklings of warm water, and few months later, and my basement and yard are filled with baby plants! I did learn one lesson. Don’t plant too early! I sowed some seeds a few weeks prematurely so I had to pot my squash/ zucchini outside before my garden beds were ready. Otherwise, everything is going according to schedule (or at least so says my coworker and the Farmers Almanac).

Squash and Zucchini; Garden

If you have always wanted to try gardening but have been too timid to start, take me as proof that you can be relatively successful on your first try! If you’re still on the fence, begin with an indoor or patio pot herb garden. Just think about how good your summer meals will be with fresh thyme, dill, basil, oregano, safe or cilantro!

Plus, check out my recent post on garlic scapes. You can grow garlic all year round with very little effort!

Cheers & happy gardening!
