When we purchased a house with a large garden in the backyard, I didn't think that it would be hard to look after things. Unfortunately, after moving in, I realized that my agricultural skills were seriously lacking, which is why I started trying to figure things out. Instead of ignoring my yard, I started reading more about botany and how to prepare the land. Within about a year, my garden was healthy and thriving. This blog is all about maintaining your garden for the long haul, so that you can enjoy the fruits of your labors and eat a little healthier.
