Preparing for Spring

It may seem a bit soon to begin planning your garden, but spring will be upon us in no time and seed starting time is right around the corner. If you've always wanted to begin a garden, but have felt you don't have enough yard space to make that happen, this could be your year! May I suggest my good friend, Rosemary Hansen's e-book, "Grow a Salad In Your City Apartment"? Even if you're in an apartment setting or smaller yard, as is so common in urban areas, you still have growing options. Rosemary knowledgably walks you through in great detail explaining the "why's" and the "how's" and truly sets you up for success, all beautifully presented.

She asked me to write a short excerpt for her book of my experience with square foot gardening (a form of container gardening ideal for smaller spaces) and I've added my favorite borscht recipe (so. darn. good.) since I mention it in the excerpt. I hope you enjoy!
