Fun in the Garden

July 2011 Garden pictures 011


The best way to have fun in the garden is to start with an area that’s not too large and very low commitment.  Annuals are a great way to get started because you can learn from your mistakes and have a fresh start the next spring.

Vegetable gardens can begin in a small area and mix annual vegetables, herbs and flowers.  Not only will you bring in pollinators and other beneficial bugs, but it will look good, too.  Bright colors and a variety of shapes and fragrances can transform the normal vegetable garden into something truly special.
