Our First Spring Garden ~ Planning




We are working on getting ready for our first spring garden in another 3 months or so, but have been doing tons of research (see my Pinterest board about gardening here) and learning about starting seeds (soon yay!) and what grows well in Georgia, learning more about container gardening, using a kiddie pool for a container garden (because we already have one of those!), and more. So many ideas!


This is a fantastic quick reference chart for when to start indoor planting specific plants.

We found this composting for dummies webpage pretty helpful and restarted composting (but the right way this time) in the backyard. I can't wait to actually USE our compost this time in a garden!

When I was offered the chance to receive an Organic Seed Garden Gift Pack by Organics Unlimited I was ecstatic! How perfect was that? This gift set (which comes beautifully packaged and includes labels and sticks for each of the enclosed seed-types) has 10 different types of seeds included: Onion, Lettuce, Cucumber, Tomato, Cherry Tomato, Chilli Pepper, Radish, Carrot, Red Pepper and Courgette. This is perfect for us to get started this year and see how things go. I have fingers and toes crossed that we'll be able to enjoy at least a few things from our own garden later this year!
