Here in the north east, we had little to no winter, I'm not complaining at all! I'm just hoping the beautiful weather continues. Over the years, every spring, I've tried to plant in my back yard, I usually try to do fruits and veggies, but a few flowers also. I've pretty much given up, luckily we have a great CSA for our produce so the few strawberries we'll get this year will just be bonus.
The only thing that has grown without a bit of problem in my back yard are the bulbs my mom put in my back yard. This year I am hoping to freshen up my front yard a bit and even though we don't get much sun there, maybe I'll have better luck. I was just checking out Dig Drop Done and in addition to some funny videos that entertained my kids, I was able to search for bulbs that grow in full shade! I'm so excited after seeing how easy it is to plant and grow bulbs. visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more
Plus, Dig Drop Done is sponsoring a contest with Taniya Nayak going on until April 15! The winner will receive a $5000 yard makeover with Taniya, how cool would that be?!?!?! I'm going to take a picture of my yard now to enter at Curbside Chaos
In addition to all this, for every twitter share of this contest, $1.00 will be donated to Rebuilding Together.
I love Evelyn's video advice for planting bulbs that animals will leave alone, wouldn't that be helpful if I could get veggies to grow. What will you grow in your garden this year?
