Among the brilliant ideas gleaned from years of gardening beside my Mother, the Master Gardener. When faced with a shortage of pots for your plants, just grab a bag of dirt (or potting soil) and GI Joe it!
While we've been making a move to co-habitate, the garden has been taking off in varying shades of green, but first we had to take rocky terrain and turn it into arable land capable of fostering food stuffs with the aid of a little cardboard gardening.
Dirt eggs, earthy, with a side of grit. No, we're not eating them, but we'll be enjoying lovely stuffed squash blossoms by June, and prefect little gourdes come harvest time. This is one of three eco-friendly indoor starting methods I'm trying this year for eco-seedlings. The eggshells will contain the seedlings in a tiny cocoon as stalks harden and tender roots grow.
Time to get back to the dirt, to tend those things sprouting and eager for sun, the tiny seeds we sowed last year, the corner we cleared in a bargain with Mother Nature. I invite you to follow this year's Gypsy Garden and share tips & ideas for all things green and growing.
