With dread and delight, I figured out early this summer that my entire fencerow was chock full of blackberry bushes. Panic set in. I had no way to quantify how many I was going to get, but I could tell it was a LOT. I (impatiently) waited for the berries to come in. And man, did they come in! So far this year I have gotten about four gallons of berries, and at this point I am pretty much over it. I have learned some things (the hard way) that have made berry picking more enjoyable for me. Bring your... Continue reading

One question that I had when I started planting my own garden was, "What on earth am I going to do with all of these vegetables?" Picking from your own garden will usually give you a larger quantity of the same type of vegetable than you would normally use on a daily basis. Giving away extras is a nice gesture that friends and family usually appreciate, but you worked hard for that garden! Shouldn't you save those veggies for yourself? This is why I think that every gardener should seriously consider taking up canning as a hobby. Preserving vegetables that... Continue reading

If you live in an apartment, a rental home, or somewhere else without much room to plant things in the ground you may feel like there is no option for you to grow your own garden. But there is! Container gardening is growing in popularity and gives people crunched on space the ability to have their own green patch. Container gardening is exactly what it sounds like: gardening in a container instead of in the ground. These containers can be set on a patio or deck, on a terrace, in the grass, or even on rooftops! Some examples of edibles... Continue reading

When I planted my garden, a small part of me was hopeful that it would magically be repellent to rabbits. The rabbits didn't touch the sprouts and plants for a week or two, and I was even more optimistic that the garden would be safe. Then, while I was away at a family reunion, the rabbits struck. They bit off the tops of every single one of my green bean sprouts! I pouted like a little kid. How could they do this to me? I resolved to put up a fence to keep the rabbits out. Of course I didn't... Continue reading

When I was living with my parents, we always had a garden. I regret never spending much time out in the garden as a teenager, because I missed out on a lot of learning that would have prepared me for when I was ready to make my own garden. I think the extent of my gardening experience then was picking the bugs off of potato plants. Why did I have to be a reclusive, nerdy teenager? I didn't start my own garden until I had been out on my own for several years. Every year I would long to have... Continue reading
