There’s never been a better time than NOW to get your garden growing. I’ve been growing all four seasons for a number of years and I encourage everyone to grow SOME of your food at least SOME of the time!
What can you grow to counter the soaring food prices?
They’ve already been talking about how much food prices have gone up, but they also say that the worst isn’t over. The GOOD news is that you don’t have to garden all year to save BIG money on your food budget!
Even if you just grow some summer vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, and zucchini, you can save a good amount of money. Preserve your food by dehydrating, canning or freezing and you can be enjoying a taste of summer in the cold weather, too! Click to see how I dehydrate my tomatoes every year!
Here’s a work-saving tip: When you grow perennial vegetables, they just show up year after year and you don’t have to replant them. In this video, you’ll see asparagus, onions, fennel, celery, and more.
What can you grow in small spaces?
People have created unlimited remedies for those who don’t have a lot of space. Just search “vertical gardening” online and you’ll find ready-made items to purchase or DIY garden ideas from old wooden pallets, pails, and other freebies.
Search “square foot gardening” and you’ll find garden plans to maximize what you grow in your limited space.
Herbs and smaller vegetables can grow abundantly in containers, too.
There are no excuses anymore!
What if you’ve never gardened before?
As the saying goes, “You’re never too old, and it’s never too late.”
Start small. Gardening is a continuous experiment. Some years crops do better than others.
Even if you’ve tried before and didn’t succeed, I encourage you to TRY AGAIN!
