Bromeliads are really awesome tropical plants to grow as a houseplant. However, they're a little different than most houseplants. Check out my blog for some pointers to keep these beauties thriving.

If you're hesitant about starting seeds indoors, you aren't alone. It can be a daunting process to try it for the first time. You should consider starting some of your seeds outdoors using the winter sowing method! It's super easy and doesn't require a lot of materials or maintenance. Learn what seeds you are able to winter sow over on the blog.

Has anyone tried winter sowing before? Let us know how it went!

As you're planning your 2017 veggie garden, make sure to add a variety of color. Not only are different colors better for your health (so many delicious nutrients!) they look oh so pretty.

What is your favorite colorful veggie? http://ow.ly/Br59307nnqV

During the winter, I really miss being able to spend time outside with my garden. That's why I love starting seeds so much! It's like bringing a piece of my garden inside :)

My 2016 Garden Reflection: the good, the bad, and the ugly. In summary... 2016 kicked my butt! It wasn't a total bust though, there were some major wins too! :-D http://getbusygardening.com/2016-garden-reflection/
