Starting to Garden — Start Small

I have a huge yard.  And while it would be fantastic for a large garden, it is pretty daunting right now. I really would love to start growing some of my own foods and herbs but have been looking at the size of the yard and thinking I have to start a large garden to do it.

My brother brought this book up for us to read, Grow Great Grub by Gayla Trail.  She gives awesome ideas on how to start container gardens,  smaller, less daunting approaches to fresh food.  She gives ideas on using things like buckets, old planters, old watering cans to start growing peppers, herbs, tomatoes and root vegetables.  She gives tips on soil, parasites and sunlight, this book is a wealth of information and I look forward to using it as a tool to start small but to think big when it comes to fresh foods.

About Felicia

Hello, I am Felicia and I am one of the founding members of Health Now, Wealth Forever. When we came up with the concept of starting our family business, I was enthusiastic just to spend time working on a project with my family. But, as we have grown and expanded, my passion for educating myself and others - about alternative health options and changing the way we view finances and life - has taken over. While I admit I am not the healthiest of our group, I am working on it daily and hope that the articles I write help you to work on it with me. Thank you for supporting us and allowing us to open our minds and yours to an alternative way of look at health, wealth and life!
