The S.E.E.P.’s Favorite Gardening Links

Posted in Uncategorized on March 24, 2011 by theseep

One of my long-lost high school facebook friends, knowing from my regular ecovangelistic posts that I might have some gardening information to share, asked me the following:

“Hi Clint…So my little guy and I want to plant a home garden this year. Any suggestions for where I can get help with preparing???”

Hey Heather, thanks for asking!  I used your question as an excuse to go through all of the links that I’ve been saving over the past couple of years so I can start planning our garden for this year as well.  Although I still wouldn’t say that I have a green thumb, I’ve been getting better over the last 3 years of having a garden, and some of our fruit trees are doing great!  It’s definitely a dynamic process and we’ve experimented with a traditional garden, container and raised bed gardening, drip irrigation with computerized timers, seed collecting, and other techniques and most importantly, tried to enjoy the process.   Hopefully the links will get you guys started on some fun projects!    – Clint
