Spring is in the Air!
Spring is in the air! What can be better than baby sprouts pushing their way up out of the dark warm soil, stretching their tiny green leaves up to greet the sun. Nothing says “new beginning” like baby green leaves on old granddaddy trees… I love it!
Are you planning on gardening this year? if so, now is a great time to start! If you have never grown anything before, give it a try! Even if it’s cherry tomatoes in a container, you will be proud of your accomplishment! Every year, I baby my garden like a proud mamma grinning at my power to create food… well God created food… I was just able to get it to grow! Yahoo!
Here’s a thought. You might want to practice. Gardening and canning is a lost art to many people. Not so long ago our grandparents used to do this kind of stuff as a way of life. It wasn’t that long ago, and I am afraid that if anything drastic would to happen and all of the Chick-Fil-As were to close down, so many people would would be helpless, not knowing what to do or how to do it. So if you practice now with a mini garden you will learn what works and what doesn’t It is better to know that now instead of in a time when your life could depend on it.
If you are a master gardener, you go you! Great job! Maybe you can find others who are interested in learning so you can pass on your knowledge. The more people are self sufficient, the less you will have to worry about them begging at your front door steps in the event of a long-term emergency situation. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.
Let’s say nothing ever happens, sheeew, I hope that is the case. You will always benefit from a garden by lowering your grocery bill and by having fresh health food.
Oh, and make sure you are using non GMO seeds.
