No room to Garden? Yes you do!!!

 

I have referenced to EnviroMom before as they come up with some great stuff.  This is another one of those brilliant posts. 

I absolutely LOVE this.  I have plenty of space for my garden and this makes me want to strap a piece of gutter onto a wall and plant.  I really think I am going to.  Now obviousally there is no root vegi’s going on here, but let the greens grow!!!  Herbs and yummy strawberries too.  There are no excuses for not growing something edible this year.  Get plantin’.

Random Useful Facts (I think)

I subscribe to a blog called Enviromom, they are a great inspiration of a green way of life to shoot for.  I say shoot for because it has always been my motto that you do not have to do everything, just do something.  Everyone can tweak little things in their lives to live a greener lifestyle.  Anyway, there last post was short and to the point.  I thought it was great enough to spread it on.

Evidently Michelle Obama is on her way to digging up a plot of grass at the White House and replacing it with a garden of  organic vegetables.  How cool is that?  It isn’t like she NEEDS to do it, I am pretty sure that there is enough food over there.  So good for her!!!  Way to set an example not only for the country, but for her girls.  Maybe a compost is on the way???  It could happen!!!

Next on the docket… The Farmer’s Almanac.  It was brought to my attention that I really should look into the Almanac, as it is pretty reliable.  So, today I decided to read up on what it has to say.  Of course, I will only spend time to tell all of you if it tells me what I want to hear.  LOL!  I have yet to get really into it, but what I did see makes me say “I knew that I knew what I was doing”. 

Today is the 22nd and you should plant your cabbage, and yesterday you should have been starting your vegi seeds indoors.

The bottom line…  At least this year,  if you need conformation because you are chomping at the bit and everyone else says WAIT, read the Farmer’ Almanac.  It made me smile!!!
