Today I only got one thing in the mail, but it's a good one!
It's a Vegetable Planting Guide from Burpee that I got for FREE!
(If you click here this where you can order it.)
I'm not really sure where I saw the link for this originally, but I know that there's a post about it on this awesome blog, Balancing Beauty and Bedlam!
I'm really excited about getting this today because I want to start growing my own food asap! I love to garden, and my family is pretty low on cash these days, so being able to pick some food from the garden and serve it that night is a great option!
This guide has information about:
HOW TO PLANT
What Makes A Great Garden?
Planning Your Vegetable Garden.
What In the World to Grow?
Building Your Garden.
Watering and Fertilizing.
Protecting the Garden.
Trellises, Stakes & Cages.
Tips & Tricks.
And Also WHAT TO PLANT:
Peppers (Hot & Sweet)
Summer & Winter Squash
Basil & Cilantro
and then a "More To Try" page.
It really is a great guide and I can't wait to read it!
Today I walked to get the mail, and I got a little SURPRISE along the way, a turtle crossing the road!
He was so cute, I love turtles.
