Tipster Tuesday! Bag & Container Gardening

I've been giving some thought to starting a garden with my daughter this year. It seems like a great project that I can do with her and the pay off is so good for you! Fresh veggies that you grew! No chemicals! Win win isn't it? I entered a blog giveaway for Burpee's Money Garden and decided that even if I didn't win that this might be a really good route to go. As described on the Burpee website each package contains seeds for 6 different veggies and is capable of producing $650.00 worth of produce- the package costs $10! It says that 1/10 of an acre is needed but since I don't have any ground in our backyard that is suitable for gardening I have decided to go the bag garden route. If you haven't heard of this before don't feel bad! I heard about it for the first time a few months ago in a Mother Earth News article. Basically you buy bags of soil and punch in some drainage holes in the bottom, split the top open and plant your plants or seeds! Sounds pretty easy, huh? I've compiled a list of websites that discuss bag gardening and container gardening in case you decide that growing your own veggies is something you're interested in!
