In case you are new to the blog or you've been lurking for a while and haven't signed up...WELCOME! September is all about GROWING! I've added a few posts so far with growing tips and soil information. I practice ONLY organic growing methods. If any of the recommendations say "fertilize" I am referring to an organic method (preferably homemade).
Store-bought fertilizers, especially organic, can be very expensive and can be harmful to the environment for many reasons. As far as the side-yard project goes, I have used homemade aged compost, dead leaves and freshly collected seaweed. *Disclaimer* The seaweed is not organic but it is natural and no animals where harmed in the process. For more information on seaweed application check out the blog archives.
While I may not specify in every post, I highly recommend using recycled material as often as possible. I'm on a budget, but more importantly I hate to waste anything!
I don't claim to be an expert on anything. I am constantly learning new things in the garden and the kitchen...oh, and at work too! While some have said I have way too much time on my hands to juggle the house, garden, work, the gym and the blog I smile and go back to my research. I may have a bit more time on my hands than most because I don't waste hours in front of the TV. In fact, I cancelled my cable months ago and I feel great!
The moral of this story? Thanks for stopping by...Come back soon and let me know what you think!
Happy Planting! -Mary
