Garden Plans and Markers

After spending two uninterrupted hours working the soil, I left behind a winter’s worth of stress and anxiety. Dirt is relaxing, and I had forgotten that picking up a spade is as exhilarating as a bite into chocolate or a plunge into an aromatic bath.

Those of you needing help designing your own gardens might want to have a look at the on-line Garden Planner. Start with a new plan, or use an existing one.

  • Claudia has done a great job of outlining the double-dig method for starting a garden here. But hang-on, later this week I’ll be posting my own-no-dig method for starting a garden on grass. Much easier on the hands.
  • Cheeky Magpie has found a great way to design garden rocks that can withstand the weather. img_3706

  1. HEY!! Susie!! How are you? Thanks for the shout out. Coming to visit you is like a breath of fresh air. Thanks for that!

    You know there’s a new TT movement? ( I’d love to see you back!


  2. Dirt is relaxing? No….really? I know that a hot tub is relaxing, and making bread is relaxing…and a slow walk on a warm day…but dirt? The only relaxing I can think of that involves dirt also involves the use of many, many small green Army men…and I have NO idea where I put them!
