She even helped us plant a little herb garden in a pot complete with sage, thyme, cilantro, and basil.
I've never had a garden of my own. Growing up my parents planted one almost every year and we would lend our hand at helping out ~ planting, weeding, watering and harvesting but it was always a chore and to be honest I never really enjoyed it. My mom loves to garden, in fact she has a post that she recently wrote about it and you can see it by clicking here.
At the class the lady was so educated and really knew her stuff about gardening! She shared five things with us that are crucial in having a successful garden.
- Only plant what you like
- Provide them (the plants) with a place to grow
- Think like the plants. Make sure they have water to drink, good sunlight, feed them well (they too need nutrition)
- Sing to your plants - get close to them
- Enjoy them - harvest them
I'm excited pull out the spade, get my hands dirty and sing to my plants!
