Whether big or small, creating your own garden is a great way to take charge of what goes into your mouth. In Gardening Express: Know How to Start a Garden Outdoor and Indoor (KnowIt Express) by Carol Hayes, you will be given the blueprint on how to create your own garden. As Carol states, plan your steps before taking the necessary action of creating your garden. Here are some tips that she offers pertaining to starting your garden: Visualize, Research, Plan, Lay, Manage and Enjoy. Carol really makes you think this process through, from are you using compost, and what type of soil do you currently have, to what type of garden interests you? Did you know there are different types of gardens to choose from? There is a variety from flowers and fruits and vegetables to herb gardens. Get started on your garden today.
Personally, I do not have the space to grow a garden, living in a concrete jungle, but I see the value of farm produce to family food. This back to basics concept that Carol provides is creating a trend and popularity amongst the Farmer's Market group. It is important to have fresh food. Once I can locate a community garden area or even a small balcony I will be drawing on some of the concepts that Carol has mentioned in this book. I loved the simple way that she broke down the information to make the process not seem so overwhelming. Another plus is in the free gardening apps that Carol introduced that appear to be extremely user friendly, especially for us novice gardeners. Can't wait to get started.
