OK, I’m an impatient gardener. (or a procrastinator) I love to pour over the pretty seed catalogs every winter imagining what we’re going to grow in the upcoming Spring. I have visions of opening fabulous heirloom seed packets and planting tiny seeds with the kids every year. Together we will watch them sprout and grow into the healthy plants we’ll eat all summer. It sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?
Yeah right, that doesn’t happen. I always forget until it’s just about almost too late. Then, I see all the gorgeous full grown plants at the garden stores and I don’t want to plant seeds anymore. I want plants. That’s what happened again this year.
And, that’s how you can go from this …………
to this………… in 30 minutes. 🙂
Sometimes it’s fun to be an impatient gardener. Instant gratification.
But, look at all those plants. I get them from our local high school’s greenhouse. A perfect situation. The students plant the seeds and nurture them until they’re pretty little seedlings. And then they sell them to me for a dollar a piece! 🙂 All those babies up there cost me less than 20 bucks! And the money goes back into the greenhouse program. Win. Win. haha
My little square foot garden has been plugging along for a few years with not much in the way of soil amendment or preparation. In the past years I’ve made sure that we used organic soil and compost but I thought it was about time to feed it. 🙂
This year I was excited to add Whitney Farms® Organic and Natural Plant Food. It’s 100 percent natural, no additives and nothing artificial. And it was so simple to use. I just opened up the re-sealable bag and added the little pellets to my soil. I mixed it all in with a rake. No dust, no smell. Easy. It contains beneficial microbes and specially designed protein-based blends provide plants with the macro and micronutrients that they need to grow and thrive.
I can’t wait to see the progress my little garden will make with this new organic plant food.

I added some colorful pinwheels from the dollar store to try and keep the bunnies away. Hopefully it will work. They just LOVED my kale and lettuce last year. Stinkers.
