Welcome back to another Green Thumb Thursday. This week my featured post is from Our Happy Acres. Dave has a lot of awesome projects on his happy acres and this garlic dehydration is no exception. I am going to have to give this a try with my next crop!
Compost is one of the easiest and most enriching thing you can add to your garden soil. Not only does it make beautiful black soil, full of nutrients, for free; composting takes garbage and re-purposes it instead of throwing it in a landfill. We currently have 3 compost bins in different stages of breakdown.
But not everything belongs in your compost container or pile.
Here are 10 Things You Never Want to Put in Your Compost…
Today it is my distinct privilege to welcome Christy Wilhelmi of Gardenerd.com and the author of Gardening for Geeks. She also specializes in small-space, organic vegetable garden design and consulting. She holds regular organic gardening classes in California, and has co-taught organic gardening at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA. Christy has been a board member of Ocean View Farms Organic Community Garden in Mar Vista, California since 1999, and gardens almost entirely with heirloom vegetables.
So, yeah, she’s basically the bomb. 😉…
I can hardly believe that we are already at this point in the year. Here in Phoenix we’ve had unseasonably high temps and a few weeks have felt like Summer. I had early bolting with spinach and lettuce because of it; but I hate to complain because I had an awesome Fall & Spring garden this year!
I have been avoiding the summer prep work because of the early heat. However, this weekend was exceptionally nice. I took advantage of the cooler temps to get some work done.
Are you ready to start planning summer garden? Here are my tips!…
