What are you growing in your garden this year ?

2017 Garden Plot and Flower Planting 


Its been so warm in StLouis the past few weeks I went ahead and started some garden work.  3 kinds of lettuce were started as well as a few sweet carrots.

I don’t trust Big Business and the poison they peddle in the grocery store. Today I started some cool weather plants and sowed 3 types of Lettuce and Sweet Carrots.
I couldn’t wait any longer to get the garden started. Its too early to be truthful. I’m sure I’ll have to protect the future plants from frosts that I know are the norm in the Midwest this time of year.
I felt it mandatory to start protecting numero'uno and make sure at least my diet is clean as can be.

Big Business is poisoning the food, poisoning the water, poisoning the air....
You’ve been warned protect yourself. 

Garden seeds are cheap and working with dirt for some reason will make a body feel good!

The following flower planting Facebook Photo was done in the strip next to the fence.
 


I've also planted flowers, trees, and grass in a few more spots around the yard.  I will be posting progress photos and additional pictures of the 2017 Gardens and Flowers in the near future.

Growing your own food is the greatest thing you can do to ensure the good health of you and your family.  It will also save you $$$.

Our StLouis Flower Garden 2013


Since learning about the decline in the Bee and Butterfly Populations in the past few years we have decided that anything that could be done to help the much needed Pollination Services that these insects provide is not only helping to create a beautiful garden but also has the added benefit of helping the USA farmers- that grow the food that we need for the USA.


We decided to add some color to our yard and property this year by Starting the following seeds in our Mini Indoor Greenhouse Facebook Page.  You will notice that all of the majority of the plants are: Butterfly and Bee Friendly.




My Nature Loving Friends at Karmik Korner at 3131 Morgan Ford, StLouis MO also have in stock Butterfly Houses if you would like to help protect the much needed Butterfly Populations.
