Have you tried gardening? Interested in starting one?

Perhaps, like me, you haven’t always had a green thumb (I have killed a lot of plants in my life!). If that’s you, my annual Gardening 101 series just might get you growing this year.

I’ve updated the popular series with new info and an exciting giveaway. I’m giving away a GARDEN! Yes, a real garden, complete with raised bed kit, lots of veggies, flowers, and everything you need to get started. How fun is that!?

    Love love love! I love everything about gardening, except the worms!!! They make me squirm and run for my life==> However, I am one with a brown thumb, I kill everything!!! ;C This year, I am determined to keep my succulents alive that my mom planted for me to start with. I live in New York and I know the weather is another challenge I have to deal with. Maybe you can come over and help out a sister, one day 😀 Thank you for the chance of winning these awesome garden giveaway!!!
