Some of you may remember my black thumb from last year. (Actually, it didn't turn out so bad in the end.) Or the year before. (That year, it did turn out badly. Sorry, morning glories.) This year I'm giving up flowers and trying my hand at a vegetable garden.
But I've got some help.
I'll be using Sprout Robot to guide me every step of the way. You type in your zip code and they tell you when to plant your seeds. I have a bunch of them that I bought up when I was worried the Mayans were right. Apparently my green onions will be best sowed the week of February 25. (This sounds a bit early to me, but I'm the one needing help, so I'm not going to question. Unless any of you have any contradictory advice.) But I don't think I'll be growing any pumpkins on my porch. Anyone want some pumpkin seeds?
They also have a feature where they tell you how to plant each seed in either a box or the ground. So I'm super excited about that, too. Hopefully I'll be saving money by harvesting from my own vegetable garden, but it will be an adventure to say the least.
What resources do you use to help you with your gardening skills?
