Getting excited about gardening

Is it because it's barely gone below zero in the past few days that I can't get gardening off my mind? Is the same thing happening to you? Well, it's sort of a blessing because, as a gardening novice, it's time to start thinking about planning out my garden plot. I'm very nervous as it's the biggest space I've ever worked ... what if I fail miserably?!?! Good thing I got a copy of Grow Great Grub in the mail. It's a great book by Gayla Trail advising on how to garden successfully (and organically) in small spaces. Trail discusses growing an edible garden in any area where there is space - no matter how small. Though there is a heavy focus on container gardening, Trail's gardening tips and tricks are useful for everyone. Her book gives advice on planting specific edibles (a run down on sowing and planting, harvesting, predicted size, space and depth), plus, she includes tasty-looking recipes. She also recommends useful gardening tools, pickling necessities, freezing tips, composting tricks, container sizes, mulching info, soil info and sooooo much more. I can't wait to give this baby a thorough read! Are you thinking about gardening?
