You’ve Got to Start Somewhere


Knowing where to start with gardening can be intimidating since you could fail and kill every plant you come into contact with.

The best thing I did was take a beginning gardening course. The second best thing I did was check out a boatload of books from the library. The third best thing I did was start gardening.

My instructor said, “I’ve killed more plants than I’ve kept alive.” That being said, school yourself and go play in the dirt!
