After much thought, I’ve decided to come up with gardening Plan B. While I’d love to have the Grow Camp garden in my yard, I just couldn’t convince my inner frugal gene. No matter how excited I got about my garden, there was a little voice in side that just wouldn’t quit. It kept saying, […]

I think I’ve found the resolution to my gardening problem. First let me explain the problem. The problem is too many critters. Between the squirrels, ground hogs, deer and any other 4-legged creature living in the northeast, my garden just doesn’t stand a chance. I once tried growing tomatoes on the porch (at least the […]

My recent dietary changes to include more fresh fruits and vegetables, preferably organic, led me to my latest adventure. My son likes to call it vertical gardening but I call it sprouting. I used to purchase my alfalfa or broccoli sprouts from the health store. I would spend anywhere from $2-$4 for little container. The […]

During one of my morning internet strolls, I happened upon a site that lists 100 Ideas for Your Green Family. One hundred ideas is a lot to digest, but I think it’s worth a review.  If it’s too much for one sitting why not institute one or two ideas each week.  Imagine how much of […]

Squirrel-B-Gone: No More Flowerbeds for You!

It looks like pepper works. In my last post I ranted a bit about squirrels reeking havoc with my plants so I peppered them (the plants, not the squirrels). This morning, I was hard at work on my laptop and I happened to look up and I saw my archenemy, the squirrel stalking (in that […]

I’m so annoyed with those tiny four-legged garden destroyers that I’m about to scream!

My little bug problem tends to put a damper on my gardening experiences. While I enjoy a home-grown fruit or vegetables just […]
