Starting a Container Garden – Tips and Tricks

Starting a Container Garden Tips and Tricks

The tides have changed…

I know I mentioned in this post a few weeks ago that gardening wasn’t much of an option our shady woods. Well, Hubby has determined that we have just enough sunshine in one corner of the yard near the driveway to grow some plants.

I’m excited to try my hands at a few of these. I don’t have much of a green thumb but I’ve got to start somewhere! Food is expensive and if I can start saving us a few dollars here and there I’m all over it. Plus the fresh taste of vegetables right out of the garden can’t be beat.

Do you garden? Have you tried a container garden?
