d*s sundays in the garden *
this sunday's garden post is all about sharing vegetable growing tips and finding some great outdoor furniture. i've been secretly wanting to grow my own veggie garden for years, but seem to kill anything i try to grow. but it looks like some of you have done it quite successfully! i thought i'd round up some links that would be helpful for starting a veggie patch, so here they are:
- tips for growing a fruit or veggie garden
- veggie garden basics
- choppin' broccoli?
- a great guide organized by veggie type
- want to grow together, check out this great guide to local community gardens!
now that you've got your garden started, you need to find some furniture that lets you relax and enjoy your handywork. so here's a little roundup of my favorite outdoor furniture- followed by some more great garden links below!
