• Last spring my garden is alive after along winter sleep. Plenty of work to be done. Planted many vegetable seedlings grown in the greenhouse. Lettuce, carrot (sowed direct into the ground), collard, kale, Swiss chard, corn, pumpkin, potato, beet, summer squash, tomato and leek. The garden is doing great. Just yesterday I harvested several zuccinni. Right away I made zuccinni chocolate cake. It is always a joy to be able to harvest from your own garden and cook with the vegetable that you grow yourself. Gardening is an excellent exercise for body and mind. Regardless how big or small your garden is.
    Thank you for coming by.

Gardening Book

If you want to try your hand in composting, read this informative book:  Let It Rot, the gardener’s guide to composting by Stu Campbell.   I enjoy reading this book, plenty of good information,  there is even illustration through all the pages.  Easy to understand, write in plain English not too scientific.  There is a chapter about what commonly use materials for compost and many other useful information.  A useful book all about compost.  From the back of the book, This is the classic guide to turning household waste into gardener’s gold!  Since 1975m Let It Rot  has helped countless gardeners recycle waste materials such as kitchen garbage, grass clippings, and ashes to create useful soil-nourishing compost.
