All my BEST gardening tips and tricks!

I know that sometimes it's not easy to find things on this blog. I'm working on that, I promise! I just can't find a post organizing option that I like. In the meantime though, Spring has hit and as we are all starting our gardens (except those lucky people out in California that are already harvesting!) I thought I would round up a bunch of my gardening posts to make them easier to find. 

Over the years I've discussed growing herbs, indoor and outdoor containers, rabbits in the garden, bugs in houseplants, seedlings, recycling household items into planters, companion planting, seed organizing and on and on. I've rounded up all of my most popular posts and linked them all to make them easy to find. So, here are my 9 best gardening posts:

If you're on Pinterest I'd love if you followed my Gardening board.. I share all my posts and so many more.

I really enjoy gardening and have so many more posts planned! I just put in a new pea trellis made with all recycled materials. I also want to show you how I grew potatoes last year and why I'm doing it that way again. I want to talk about all the herbs I grow and why I chose each one. I have problems with deer eating my garden (those suckers jump right over the fence!) and would love to have an open discussion on wildlife management. 

I'm also working on some homemade items and have been doing a health experiment for several months and I'm ready to unveil my results! It's going to be such a great spring!

  1. Great posts! I was especially interested in the one about rabbits... they are WAY TOO comfortable in my yard and garden!!! Green beans, beets, peppers were all eaten down to the soil all last year by them... This year, we are doing better, but they are eating my pole beans. I did mix up some cayenne, black pepper and bone meal a couple of days ago... (I don't have any blood meal). So far, it seems to be working... if not, I will move on to your list. Thank you.

    1. The soap works well, and they sell 2 bar packs at Dollar tree! Good luck with the rabbits....I finally got them under control and now I have deer issues! Go

  3. Great post! I am severely lacking a green thumb, but I am trying again this year. One of the times, I'll get the hang of it. ;)

    1. Don't try too hard! Good soil and a great location go a long way towards successful gardening! I notice sometimes the plants I fuss over the most tend to do the worst. Good luck with your garden this year!
