We’ve just past the vernal equinox and wow what a difference in the weather! Not two weeks ago I readied the garden during an entire week of snow, hail, sleet, and driving rain. Now? The days are longer, weather milder and the worms are going to town! The earth wants you to garden. I want you to garden. Do you want to garden?
Perfect! Let’s garden! The first stop on your gardening challenge tour is with Erica of NWEdible.com She’s got a great challenge for you.
Later this week I’ll be part of a virtual book tour for Jessi Bloom with a chance to win a copy of her book, Free Range Chicken Gardens before the month is out, then check back here next week because I’ve got other hosts (including Jessi) lined up and the challenges will come a little faster as the month progresses.
Colin McCrate with The Seattle Urban Farm Company and co-author of Food Grown Right, in Your Own Back Yard has a container garden challenge for you. I just got my hands on his book and people, it’s a must have. I only wish there was a book like this when I was just starting out trying to grow all my own food. I will do a review of this book this month as well.
Graham Kerr has a personal garden challenge for you, along with other co-hosts who will be joining in throughout the month.
This is going to be a fun-packed month with something for everyone that has enough space for an herb pot in a kitchen window. At the end of the month, remember to come back to this blog and link up what you’ve done for a chance to win some GREAT gardening prizes: a V Garden, a vegetable start subscription from Cascadian Edible Landscapes, a copy of The Urban Farm Handbook, a copy of Free Range Chicken Gardens, a copy of Food Grown Right, in Your Own Back Yard, a copy of Growing at the Speed of Life, a children’s chocolate garden from Chocolate Flower Farm, an original garden broom and more!
Are you still here? Get on over to Erica’s yard and get growing!
