Welcome Spring with a Hot Grow System Discount

March 7, 2010

The snow cover has cleared from the garden but not completely off of the landscape, leaving us with glimpses of both the past winter and the coming spring!

Mild weather that we haven’t seen for months made today a perfect time to venture out into the backyard. With temperatures close to sixty degrees I wasn’t the only one outside attempting to bid farewell to winter.

Upcoming Garden Events and Free Tickets if You Act Fast

A recent article here previewed some of the local garden shows that are arriving in the area. I made my way out to the Pennsylvania Garden Expo last week and participated in a workshop this weekend at “The Plant Place” that focused on attracting beneficial insects to the garden, heirloom seeds, and ideas for seed starting.

The next events on the calendar are the Maryland Home and Garden Show on March 12 – 14, a Biochar workshop on March 20th at the Organic Mechanic headquarters, and a fruit grafting workshop on March 27th conducted by the Pennsylvania Backyard Fruit Growers at the Landis Valley Museum near Lancaster PA.

If there is anyone interested in attending the garden show next weekend at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, I have a couple of sets of tickets to give away. A pair of tickets will go to the first two people who request them in the comment section below (leave your comment requesting the tickets and I will contact you by email to get the address to mail the tickets to).

Fall Vegetable Gardening Videos… Just in Time for Spring

Before you run off to embrace springtime take a minute to check out the video that I shot way back in November of the fall vegetable garden. This is the first clip from the latest batch of videos that are finally available and will be released over the next few weeks.

Future videos will feature composting worm bins, cold tunnels, indoor sprouting ideas, garlic planting techniques, cold frames, and rain barrels. Subscribe to the Veggie Gardening Tips YouTube Channel to make sure that you catch every episode coming your way this spring season.

I just LOVE this video of your garden! It is so beautiful and not at all what I imagined. I like the way it’s informal (as opposed to regimental rows as far as the eye can see) and interspersed w/ trees here and there. I also like the way you show the groupings-a few pepper plants here, and a bed of beets over there-it’s great!

I always seem to plant too many of one thing-two people do NOT need 10 pepper plants, even if they are of diff. varieties-and not only do I get sick of eating it but I run out of space for other stuff.

Thanks again for all your hard work! And we don’t care if the video is from Nov…gives us all the more time to plan ahead for ourselves. A Goal, in a sense.

Have a Great Spring! barbee

Hi Barbee and thanks for checking out the video. Spring is actually a great time to start thinking and planning for the fall garden as you organize your plantings. I’ll have more videos out soon, you have a great Spring also!

I just started visiting here today, and I have to tell you how amazing it is to have this wealth of information all in one place! I am new to gardening (very,very new!) and trying to find everything I need to start my first vegetable garden. Thank you for all you do, and keep up the good work!

Welcome Debs!
I’m sure you are going to LOVE this site as much as I do-and I’ll tell you a secret: If you ask a direct question in the comment section, you’ll find friends who are eager to offer their experience(s). Many times Kenny has taken the time to personally respond and offer helpful info.
I’m beginning my 4th year of gardening and I wish you Good Luck w/ yours… and remember the #1 rule: If you don’t plant it, it will not grow. LOL

Gardening time is coming!!! I was reading your post and just wanted to see if you’ve heard of the Grow Box? I’ve tried it last spring and had so much success. I had Spanish Onions, Cucumbers, Butternut Squash and Beets that grew like crazy! It’s actually a bit better and a whole lot less expensive than a lot of competitors! They hold about a gallon and a half more water. Check it out at http://www.agardenpatch.com
Happy Gardening!
