We are talking about making a home garden! I am going to grow green peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes! In addition to that I will be planting flowers all around!

I am going to go get a small garden book at some point today so I can figure out when I should start planting. We are in an area where it will frost until about the end of April so i am going to have to look into all of that!

Im so excited and I hope that this will help with some of my anxiety and give me a hobby!

Gardening is suppose to be relaxing, Chapters can probably give you a few book suggestions and what not and perhaps anyone else here who is a gardener can give you some tips.

I just started my little garden. I am using planters for them. We live on base and aren't allowed to add anything ourselves. A few weeks ago I planted some Black-eyed Susans and Alaskan Daisies for the front of the house and I have another one with some Basil, Cilantro and Chives. Since it's still cold out here at night I bring in everything at night and put it in the garage. On my way out for the day I put everything where I know the sun shines the longest. Usually for this area it's better to plant late April. If you have any questions as far as gardening feel free to ask.

You should probably start your composting now.

Luke and I are doing that this spring/summer too! My mom always gardened with us when we were little until her knees got bad. I'm really excited, I always really enjoyed it. And it feels good to eat the veggies you grew youself!

I can't wait until we have a house because I plan on doing the same thing. I am planting flowers and herbs in my window box at the moment, but I can't wait to move out of this apartment so I can have my garden!!! Gardening is such a fun hobby!!!

How exciting!!! We did this when I was growing up and I would love to do it again. I don't have a very green thumb though, so it could be interesting. Good luck!

Woohooo! Im excited! I already started my "starter plants" inside. Im supposed to keep them in a warm area away from sunlight until they sprout so for now they are inside during the night and out in the shade during the day once it warms up! If I cant get them to sprout I will go to lowes and get the kind that are already started, but I am really hoping I can do it with the seeds!
