Happy Earth Day 2015!
We are celebrating this Earth Day by venturing into new, uncharted green living territory – gardening. I'm not talking planting some things outside and not using pesticides, but actual grow something to eat type gardening.
A little background on me. My grandmother has the greenest thumb I know. She had a garden that I helped her weed and harvest from. From as far back as I can remember she could grow anything from anything. Only have a leaf? No problem. She can turn it into a tree like some sort of superhero x-men. Me on the other hand. Give me a robust plant and I will give you back a shriveled up thing. Yeah it is that bad.
But I have succumb to a positive peer pressure of wanting to have my own garden. What better month to get started than April? So here we go, come join the ride with me and send some positive vibes towards my plants.
High Mowing Organic Seeds is the nation's largest, independently-owned, farm-based seed company. It is dedicated to supporting sustainable agriculture and providing farmers and gardeners with the highest quality, non-GMO, certified organic seed.
To start your own yogurt cup garden:
- High Mowing Organic Seeds
- Yogurt Containers
- Organic Potting Soil
- Small Spoon/Shovel
- Super Cute Baseball Hat is optional
1. Fill the cup almost to the top with soil. Add water making it moist not soggy.
2. Place 2-3 seeds per container.
3. Cover with soil and find a nice sunny spot for your plants to grow.
Our yard is not ideal for a garden. Plus add to that 2 large dogs and it would be torn up within minutes. For now, we are keeping our seedlings in the kitchen window which gets a lot of sunlight. In a few weeks, hopefully, we will be on our way to our very first organic garden!
How do you celebrate Earth Day or live a greener life?
