Planting your own herb garden is easy and doesn't require a lot of space. The rewards of harvesting fresh herbs all season long, and also drying herbs for the winter, are well worth the small investment of time and effort.
Nothing sweeps away the doldrums of winter like flipping through a seed catalog: The colors! The flowers! But with hundreds of catalogs featuring thousands of ornamentals and vegetables, it can get overwhelming. Where to start? Here!
When it comes to growing your own food, there’s only one thing more satisfying than seeing your plants go from wily seedling to ripe, juicy fruit--and that’s seeing your plants go from a miniscule seed(!) to ripe, juicy fruit.
Problem: Hot weather with little rain is tough on traditional container gardening. Solution: A self-watering container--also referred to as a subirrigated planter, or an SIP for short--is large, lovely, durable, and ridiculously successful!
Picture this: It's deep midwinter, and spring is still a long way off. Can't wait for fresh greens to grow outdoors? Try growing microgreens inside! They’re delicious, packed with nutrients, cute as a button, and ready to harvest in 1 to 2 weeks.
