Nothing will motivate a man to move forward faster than knowing what's behind Him.

Gardening (Growing your own food)

A quick video and a few tips on getting your seedlings started.  These are some peppers.  Don’t wait too late, get your heels a clicking.

 

This is what happens to Marigolds when you have a little patients.

This is what happens when you put  fertile dirt in a container and plant some seeds in it and wait several days.

These are Marigolds

The Strawberries has taken root

You can grow Strawberries right on your patio. These were starts that I dug up from my raised bed and transplanted them into another area of the yard. This year however, I will be growing them from pots on my patio. Strawberries are annuals and will come back every year if cared for properly. As you can see on the bigger pots I have tomato supports. Hopefully they will run up the supports. It will be interesting to see how the strawberries utilize the stiles and banisters since they are runners. I will be transplanting some to the smaller pots to another part of the yard. I found that you would have healthier plants and a more bountiful yield if you rotate your crops every year. It’s a little work but well worth it. Updates to come….

From start to finish, it takes patients and a little know how.  It can be done  and the rewards are plenty.
