Well, dear readers, it’s about that time of year again… as we head into spring and we all start getting a little garden fever I thought it would be fun to delve into our archives to revisit some of our great posts from the past to get you inspired for this year’s season.
I plan to bring you all along with me this year as I attempt a bit of gardening, and I look forward to hearing what you’re growing as well.
It’s hard to believe Simple Organic has already been around for two years! When we started out, editor Katie Fox spearheaded a great series on the basics of gardening. Here are my favorite posts from the series.
- Starting a Garden with Repurposed Materials
- 3 Options for Creating New Vegetable Gardens
- 5 Gardening Basics for Beginners
- Companion Planting
Since those early days, we’ve had more helpful posts on gardening. Here’s some more reading material to inspire you as you brave those last weeks of winter.
- Heirloom Seeds
- Planting and Growing Strawberries
- The Most Natural Kind of Pest Control
- Community Gardens
Don’t forget about composting!
If you’re new to composting or need a refresher, be sure to (re-)visit our Compost Q & A series where I interviewed a master composter with reader questions, and gave an overview of some composting options.
So now the questions is, what are your gardening plans for this year? Have you started yet?
