My wife told me about a class at Saddleback Church called Gardening for Life. It was very interesting to me, so I looked into it and signed up! It led me to http://www.newwaystofeedtheworld.blogspot.com/. What a great way to garden and teach others. So I want to try it and see if it's that easy.
They got some of their ideas from a book called Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew. After reading some of this book, I have confidence that I can maintain an healthy and productive garden. If I can do that, maybe I can also teach others around the world.
This is where I was when I decided to get a little more serious. Some hard dirt, badly treated tomatoes, decorative garlics, a chocolate mint and a bunch of weeds... The lawn sprinkler kept spraying the tomatoes and should have fixed it months ago. All of my tomatoes split badly and I'm told that it is from over watering and/or irregular watering.
