I can assure you that Spring has arrived in North Texas and that the heat of summer is not far behind. I have all ready spent one full weekend in the backyard trimming hedges & bushes, and yesterday, my husband and I spent the better half of the day trimming to very tall evergreens outside our front door. These things must have been at least 13 feet tall and it took both of us to get them cut back and down to a more reasonable size. I think we did a great job, they look good and our front walk looks spruced up!
Something else I've been itching to do is have my own garden. I don't want anything large, and our soil here is so bad it's difficult to make grass grow, let alone flowers & vegetables, but I am considering a kit from one of the home improvement stores that snaps together to create a raised garden. Once I put the kit together I would fill it with organic soil and then simply plant whatever veggies I desire.
I've recently learned about Whitney Farms®, a company that makes all natural and organic products for the garden. They are currently offering a $3 coupon (click the link to get one for yourself!), and I can use it on my purchase of organic plant food which will complete my shopping list for my new garden. This plant food is easy to apply and does not have the manure odor that comes with more conventional plant foods. It's organic and provides plants with everything they need to grow into healthy, mature plants.
I'm actually looking forward to this little project, and just as soon as I figure out the best way to keep the abundance of rabbits that we have around here out of my little garden, I will be taking on this project!
So tell me, do you have a garden? What do you think about my raised garden idea?
