I swear...Chronicle Books puts out the greatest books ever.
I just read about this new book, Garden Anywhere:
And I want it so bad. The word "budget" is such a sexy word in these times. Cheap? Maybe even free? SOLD.
Even though my mom is an avid gardener, I haven't tried it too much myself, until lately. Now I'm so excited about watering my herbs and perennials in the morning, checking their progress, watching them grow, inhaling their sweet and savory smells. Now I just want to keep going (my only adversaries are the horrible, and I mean HORRIBLE, mosquitoes that populate my backyard all late-spring-through-summer) and read everything I can about gardening.
I already have a trip to Lowes planned for the weekend so I can make the compost bin I've been daydreaming about for months. I'm going to base my project on this one.
Composting is so valuable. No more smelly food rotting in the trash can. Plus, that's less trash to take out. Less crap in landfills and more becoming rich, lush soil to grow delicious and beautiful plants!
Now, does anyone have any (environmentally friendly) ideas for the horrible mosquito problem? I'm looking into bird houses.
