Spring Starts in Exactly 1 Month: Is Your Garden Ready?

Okay, I am once again just putting a link to my Care2 Healthy Living post since I am trying to keep up with all of my work.

Since today is February 20, that means that the Spring Equinox will be here in a month. I not only have visions of completing my book by the April 30 deadline, but also of being able to finally get back out into my garden. I really miss it and am looking forward to growing some more food in my micro-farm so that I can really be LA Farm Girl.

Here's some tips to get you started in the garden. First thing you need to do is clean up. Read on for what comes next 5 Simple Ways Get Your Garden Ready For Spring.

My garden last summer after I had already started the book, even then it was sparse!

Give Somebody A Gardening Gift for VD

As the deadline for my book draws ever closer, I find that I have been neglecting this blog (along with other places that I normally write).

So, I am once again, just going to direct my readers (how many of you might actually be left) to my post for Care2 this week. It is all about giving garden related gifts Giving Gardens of Love. For a change, I reminded people that they can actually give a loved one a garden instead of just giving them something from their garden. And if they really want to give a long-lasting gift, maintain it for someone too!

Check it out and let me know if you have any other ideas that garden lovers would like.
