Starting Seeds Indoors is Easier Than You Think!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I did it!

There Just Might Be Hope For My Garden!

This Memorial Day weekend we spent 3 days outside wasting time and money trying to beautify our yard.

When Peat Pots Fail

I have a lot of lessons to learn in life and one of them just happens to be about gardening.  I feel like a moron but what can you do about it now? Michigan had some mind blowing weather in the middle of March this year and all the animals came out of hibernation to …
