Back garden madness happening yesterday - giant construction vehicles beeping as they replace the water main behind my home while I'm talking grass fungus issues and reviewing the StaySharp Max Reel Mower from +Fiskars Brands Inc​. Easy to use - Immagonna whip this garden in shape!

Today in my garden I was surrounded by ferns and iris and planted container gardens in the sunshine. Therapy for the soul.

Yesterday I was bombed with texts and emails from all my sweet friends in the Houston area - apparently the local newspaper picked up Mary Beth Nord Breckenridge's feature on my book "101 Organic Gardening Hacks" and Houston liked the hacks and tips.
Thank you +Houston Chronicle - I appreciate all the garden love I can get!

Back in the Victorian era they used to call Bleeding Heart flowers "Lady in the Bath". Can you see why?
Turn a bleeding heart bloom upside down then gently loosen the petals and pull them apart. Tada - a little person in a bathtub.

Starting seeds today. For we northerners it's only about 4 weeks until the height of planting season. I'm growing microgreens, beets, pole beans, and zinnias. Super fun!!!
Click through below and see how I used the "GrowEase Starter Kit" (self-watering nurseries that make it pretty easy to succeed) from +Gardener's Supply .

Morning friends! indoorherbgardenkits.com asked me to review the planting process for their Shabby Chic Planter Box Kit.
Below is a review - The kit is easy to plant and I had fun watching the coir soil expand 3X it's normal size (my favorite part).
*This kit has chalk & herb plant markers that were cute.
*There are almost too many seeds; I saved more than half back.
*The black liner has absolutely no drainage holes. This spells failure, so I cut my own holes for drainage.
*Design Note - from a style perspective I would have preferred a more modern non-wood box for a home display.
