Learning to Grow a Garden: 17 Lessons From an Absolute BeginnerKatie Allison
As anyone who reads my blog with any regularity knows, I have been getting really interested in gardening in the past two or three years, and this spring, I really dove head first into the gardening obsession (I think it’s more than a hobby for a lot of people) for the first time.
As a total newbie gardener, I have SO MUCH to learn and I am reading as much as I can and also picking the brains of other local gardeners who know their stuff. But much of what I am learning is just a matter of trial and error on my part — hands-on learning with my own plants and my own dirt in my own garden.
As summer gets into full swing and my spring efforts start to show their colors, I’ve realized that I’ve already learned quite a few things about how to make flowers and edibles grow (and not grow), just by seeing how things have gone for me.
I decided I’d share a little round-up of what my garden has taught me so far this spring (some of it the hard way!).
