Want to start raising chickens in your own back yard? Lisa Steele, renowned chicken gardener, author, and speaker is coming to my Facebook Live event on November 19, 2018 to help you get started raising your own fresh eggs daily.
Do you journal about your garden? Do you know want to be entertained and learn from your own garden efforts? Of course you do. That is why Donna Balzer wrote the Three Year Gardener’s Gratitude Journal: Part Diary, Part Personal Growing Guide. This guide is packed with fun tidbits and garden information as well as garden stories. Donna shows you how to use it in your garden.
If it is little jobs for little people you are excited about sharing then watch the second half when Donna works with her grandkids in the garden. Tips for getting kids involved? Just do it yourself and they will follow and the messier the better.
If you love raspberries and want even more fruit then do as I say, not as I do! This year moisture is in short supply for our fruit trees and berries. I use to have an irrigation system on my raspberry patch at my new-to-me old house in Qualicum Beach. We even installed a big seven foot –tall structure to stop the tall plants from flopping over. But last year we tore apart the old irrigation system because it was so leaky and out of date and wasteful. Note to self: that was a mistake.
