Unrealistic Gardening Expectations

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Grab a cup of coffee or soda or glass of juice and join me in my indoor wonderland of green where I explain how to achieve realistic gardening expectations as well as show some more tips on successfully growing various organic vegetables such as peppers, tomatoes, tomatillos, bush beans…and even potatoes! I’m having a great day today, but it’ll be even better if I could get you to take a few minutes to hang out with me. It’s always funner when you drop in. 🙂 ps: I promise not to throw potting soil this time, ok?

    Vegetable Garden?

    Saturday, January 28th, 2012

    So my brown thumb and I are going for take 2 on growing our own vegetables.
    🙂
    I had a tiny bit of success last year and managed to grow some broccoli, a couple of zucchinis and 1 yellow squash.

    My issue is this:
    If my broccoli (or tomato or pepper) row is successful, I now have… what, maybe 2 weeks to eat 9 or so heads of broccoli before it goes bad?

    Is there anything I can do to enjoy the vegetables of my labor for longer? I could probably freeze broccoli (could I?), but I can’t freeze tomatoes.

    I work so hard, and I want to be able to enjoy the things I grow.
