I’m dreaming of a beautiful garden full of edibles and flowers but all I have is a water-logged lawn and no idea where to begin. Calm down, woman! That’s all I can really tell myself at this moment. I’m a complete newbie, but I do know that it’s just January in the Pacific Northwest; planting season isn’t for another two months or until after the last chance of frost. I think I have time…
Let’s begin inventorying what tools I have and what things I need to do to begin gardening. A mental, beginner’s checklist full of inadequacies and bad information.
- Miracle Grow
- Watering can
Bic’s need list:
- Planter boxes
- Seeds and indoor starting materials
Alright. Being woefully unprepared just means you learn hard lessons. It will be a learning experience that may or may not lead to epic failure.
I’m going to begin this journey by setting some goals for the week and month. This weekend’s goal will be to acquire supplies to make two planter boxes. Let the challenge begin!
