Gardening For Beginners

This page is a introduction for gardening for beginners to get the excitement growing for developing your own garden.

Do you come home from work, tired and stressed out to the point that all you want to do is pop a microwave dinner in the microwave, toss back a few and sit and vegetate the rest of the evening in front of the T.V. or play a video game?

Perhaps you have had a frustrating day dealing with your employees, boss, people in general, traffic, failure, children, spouse and the list goes on. You work hard but there seems to be little to show for all your efforts.

Then I suggest it is time for a new hobby: vegetable gardening! There is much to be said for running one's fingers through the soil or water, planting seeds, nurturing plants and finally eating/canning what you have grown.

As we work in our garden, the stress and frustration of the day will transfer itself from our fingers into the soil and be replaced by a feeling of content and joy.

Why? Because in the beginning we were all farmers. There is an inherent nature within us that cries out to grow something.

Vegetable gardening is fun, exciting and a lot of hard work. There is also some disappointment and frustration when our seeds do not take on the life we had hoped they would or when an insect or disease takes out our plants.

And there is always the heat for some areas. In temperatures over 90 degrees plants just will not do well no matter how much water we put on them.

More on Gardening for Beginner

In today’s market, it seems we pay almost $1 for a can of green beans. The can is half bean and half water. Even if you do not grow green beans, you can save a lot of money going to the store and buying them in bulk from the produce market.

Better yet, visit a Farmer's Market in your area or buy fresh produce from stands on the side of the road. They are all over the place in Texas during the growing season. Then you can actually can or freeze them yourself for later use.

As you look through our gardening site, you may be getting ideas about your own garden. We talk about mulching, composting and many other subjects.  We also put some of our own life in here and a thing or two that might be helpful outside gardening.

As you will see, I post both the good and the bad. It would be easy for me to hide my mistakes but I post them as well so that we can all learn from them.

Go get the shovel!
