It’s national gardening day! Grab a trowel or a shovel and let’s get digging! Whether you are a seasoned gardener or aspiring to be, I’m sharing some links and words of wisdom on this special day!
Words of Wisdom on Gardening (from me)
- Check on your garden every day (morning if you can) to see what has grown, what might need water, or tackle pest problems before they worsen.
- Remember even seasoned gardeners kill things – and sometimes it’s not really our fault, it can be bad luck or the plant could be sick.
- Select a color palette for your garden and stick to it! Mine is white, purple and pinks with touches of yellow.
- Remember gardening is also a work out so though the cost can be high (like $200 for plants?) you are spending a day in the sun maybe listening to an audiobook, or in your own thoughts and exercising your body!
- In fall we are planning and prepping our gardens for a spring bloom. We are always preparing for the season ahead!
