Today I have a yard tour for you. I was going to do this earlier…but a hail storm shredded some of my flowers to shreds and they are just now starting to look good again! Mother Nature is a curious creature. :) Continue reading

I have a great little project for all of you out there that would like to try your hand at gardening but are not quite sure where to start. An herb container garden is a great place to start! It is small in size, but yet it can yield a large amount of herbs. It is also very pretty to look at and can be part of your yard decor.
So does anyone want to make a fun herb garden? Continue reading
I am really excited to try the new Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix. I recently went on a vacation and when I got home, much to my dismay, a couple of my potted plants had died. If I had had this mix,( that retains up to 50 % more moisture), my plants would have been just fine. If I use this soil, I won’t have to worry when I am gone for several days at a time. You also only have to fill your pots part way with this soil and then add water and it expands 3 times so it saves money on potting soil. I plant lots of pots of flowers outside in the summer, so it will be great to save on the potting soil and not have to water them quite so often!
I also want to try this mix in my garden because I have a little bit of clay in the soil and by adding this mix it will really help to add mulch and nutrients to the soil and the benefits can last for several years. Plus it will feed my plants for up to 6 months helping them to grow up to 3 times bigger, producing more fruits and veggies! It is an easy way to prep my garden for the spring and summer growing seasons.
So let’s all get out there and start growing!
