My garden is finally planted, and my fear this year is that I am too lazy for the task that I just took upon myself. There’s something about the spring that brings out all the wanna be, self sufficient, Little House on the Praire type of personality in me. The beautiful weather whips through our woods and field, and the ease in which I bought over 100 plants just warms my soul.
And then the work begins and I start thinking about what this garden is going to require in the middle of 100 degree, drought weather heat in NC, and I think I might have bit off more than I can chew. Yet I know that when the kids pick those first cucumbers right off the vine and munch on them right in the garden, it will be worth it.
I go back and forth about whether I can keep up my desire to go all organic. I have never sprayed at all because we eat right from our garden, but I do want to figure out better ways to keep the pesky critters off of my plants. Something yucky infested my garden last year, and I wasn’t quite accomplished enough to get rid of them.
My desire is to find great organic products that help in all aspects of my gardening, so when Whitney Farms® a full line of 100% organic plant food and organic soil with no additives, nothing artificial, and just ingredients from the Earth offered to let me review their Plant Food, and Tomato and Vegetable Food, I was thrilled. I am so willing to educate myself further on organic gardening over traditional methods.
Three of our kids were my main assistants and we used Whitney Farms® throughout our garden. I am really excited to watch my garden grow.
Here are a few of the important things I found out.

One of the best things about my garden placement is that our neighbor’s horse hangs out and keeps me company continually. As soon as he hears me in the garden, he comes galloping over for a treat. So far, he is only getting some of the healthy weeds I am pulling, but soon, he’ll get some of my bounty. 🙂
If you are a gardener or wanna be, even if you desire just a few containers on your patio, check out their site and take advantage of the $3 off coupon. That is a high value one that you do not want to miss out on.
How about your garden – is it planted yet or are you still thinking it out?
Do you try to do it organically?
