I have blogged plenty this late in winter regarding my desire to have a garden this summer and fall. Part of my desire stems – pun intended – from the wonderful produce I received the one summer I was in a CSA, community-supported agriculture. Another piece of the puzzle is that I love fresh veggies and they cost a fortune at the local grocery and are not all that good. I try to frequent our local farmer’s markets – yes, I said markets plural – but the schedule is not always convenient.
Late last week, I picked up the new edition of Mother Earth’s News. This is a magazine I use to read all the time as a freshman in college but hadn’t picked up in years, decades to be precise. I have some additional ideas on what I can grow where I live and what will grow easily. I also have done extensive research on container gardening. Imagine my joy at receiving an email this morning with an article attached that detailed a Beginner’s Guide to Fruit and Vegetable Gardening.
