I have many new goals I want to achieve this year in the garden, around the homestead and as a blogger which I thought I would share with you so you know what is likely to be coming up this year on the blog and to inspire you to set some homesteading goals.
I often hear that starting a garden is too expensive which is why people I know don’t want to grow. Other popular reasons I hear include it’s too much work and it doesn’t look good. Today I want to bust the myth that starting an organic garden is expensive and share all of my thrifty gardening tips with you.
I’ve been starting seeds undercover for the last few years but usually around March. This year I started my seeds on Boxing Day (26th December) to get a head start on the growing season for my tender plants which have long growing needs and now, in mid-January I’m sowing even more!
Yup, I’ve gone a little bonkers in getting a head start this year because I messed up so badly with my seeds last year and lost a bunch to late storms which decimated the garden.
You can start seeds right now for larger plants which will have a better start in your garden come spring or you can start seeds for indoor herbs and salads.
