Okay.....here's the Poop and Peat of it all! I always amend my soil before I plant anything (especially here in Florida where our soil can be so sandy). I mix up a big ole container of Cow Manure and Peat Moss and work it deep into the soil...really helps!
Now here's quite a few "Don'ts"
Don't buy cheap garden hoses...they kink up on ya! This makes me nuts...trying to wrangle the kinks out of the hose. When I water....I want water!
In the same manner....don't buy cheap garden tools. Just when your trying to plant your petunias, this can happen....not so much fun anymore!
This one's a double whammy....Don't buy cheap clippers in the first place.....Secondly, don't leave them out in the rain. They won't cut a thing now!
Don't forget to clean up your work bench. It should look as purty as the garden.
Likewise, don't leave your junk laying around after you've planted.....just gives hubby an opportunity to gripe at ya!
Don't forget to dead-head your roses......so you'll get more of these!
Don't forget to water your plants in pots frequently...it doesn't take long for this to happen!
Don't ya just wonder how this happened? Especially since 'nobody' knows a thing about it!
Okay, so enough of the negatives...let's get onto some positives!
Do compost your kitchen scraps and yard waste.....it's good for the environment and it makes ya feel good too! I don't have a bin...I just dump stuff in the 'lower 40'. LOOK...I have a couple a' tomato plants coming up!
Do save your garden rake heads...they make great trellis'!
Well, I think I'll call it a day now..
