    A friend told me about this soil block building tool. No more plastic/paper containers to store or throw away!

    If you’d like to keep a gardening notebook, check out her new e-book at:

    Off to start seeds,



    I third the “Carrots love Tomatoes” book and I agree Checking with your local 4-H or Extention office. They have great info and classes. I took a few. They will have info on local clubs also. Not to mention farmer markets.

      I also liked the Jeff Ball movies. It tells you how to do raised beds.

       You are so lucky to have a zone 7!  I am zone 4. 🙁   We don’t get to plant until close to June and have about a 60 day growing season.  We don’t get to have the stuff grow back unless it was seeds that were lucky enough to fall. Not likely.. LOL  but does happen every once in a great while.

      Good luck on your gardening!

    Dana, you said this: “I’m more interested in the process than the output so I’m not particular about what is being planted.”

    This caught my atttention and I would caution that if you aren’t concerned about output and what is being planted, then you and your children will become less interested in the process. So my suggestion is to continue to do what I think you’ve started and that is plan and study. It’s well worth it and your children will pick up on your excitement. A fav site of mine for bug treatments and companion planting is:

    and a book that is highly useful is: The Organic Gardener’s Handbook of Natural Insect and Disease Control.
