Its Almost Time For Gardening!

Happy Friday Everyone!

For some like me, Friday means payday!! Well Its actually my last payday from my old job because I was let go due to restructuring. However, I have two months to find a new job so besides job hunting I will be getting some home projects done.  My biggest project by far is going to be setting up my summer garden. I know what your thinking but Angie the groundhog saw his shadow! Well, that's up there and I live in the land of sun and hurricanes so although Phil predicted one thing I am saying its no better time to start getting yourself ready!

First, you need to decide on what you're going to grow this year!

I myself use a variety of seeds from a variety of places but if you're just starting maybe think about getting packs that cost a whole lot less than if you bought each pack separate like I normally do.
A few good examples of bulk seeds can be found here, here and here!

Then if you are starting your seedlings indoors you need to decide if you are using seed starter kits or if you're using dirt in containers!

See where I live in Florida we have more sand than dirt so I am doing everything in containers which, to be honest with you works out so much better. This gives each plant a home or spot of their own and I can be creative on where and how they go. So what kind of containers do I use?  Well, ladies and gents you will be surprised as I use a variety depending on what I am growing so let's get started.

For My Tomatoes and Peppers
I go with a medium bucket similar to these!
These are great for tables, slightly dug into the ground or hanging!

For my Potatoes, I am kinda upset I found these after I planted my Potatoes plants for the season but these grow bags are awesome! If you have never grown Potatoes before you will understand when you have to keep adding the dirt to the containers!

I am considering buying one of these pocket growing wall containers for my Lettuce, Peas, and Herbs! I have just the right spot for it as well!

These breathable fabric grow bags are great for your Green Beans, Zucchini, and Squash!

Then for stuff like cucumbers and any other container-ed veg you have the option of one of these tiered garden beds! Best thing is you can add a trellis on the back and your cucumbers have a place to climb!

Most of all have fun with your garden it is an extension of you! Mine this year is going to be an outdoor sanctuary for me with a table chair and decor!  Some ideas I am thinking on is glow in the dark pathway stones! How about some solar butterflies or light-stakes? Or you can use some seriously adorable planters!

Gardening is a great way to relax and enjoy yourself so however, you decide to do your garden let your light shine in it and even if you end up killing the plants like I do now and then you can be sure you will have fun doing it!
