Organic Gardening Tips

Thank you goodnplanty! I recently entered a free give away at goodnplanty's website, and all I had to do was offer up some of the things I do to save money and recycle things in the garden. Guess what! Yes, I won the prize.. Check this out for my entry which includes CD's, pantyhose, pee and tea leaves!

This surprise win has me pondering how I can share other idea's from my gardening experience. I have a friend who has recently returned from a year traveling, including experiences WWOOFing, which is a volunteer experience as a Willing Worker on Organic Farms. My partner and I did some WWOOFing in 2002 in France. It's a wonderful experience living with the locals, working in organic gardens and learning from other experience organic gardeners. We can learn so much from sharing stuff. So for me.. I will look at ways I can share bits n pieces as part of my comittment to the blog improvement project. In the meantime, if you have any gardening tips please post them here or at goodnplanty..

I don't think I should offer any gardening tips! We planted a herb garden in pots a couple of weeks ago and I think I've managed to kills nearly all of them!!

Hi Tamara - finally able to sit down and visit some blogs after returning from o/s!

Thank you very much for giving me an award while I was away - always glad to read about another garden/book lover. I have only recently read about WWOOFing and it sounds like something I would have definitely given a go - pre kids!

Also, have you read Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle - I absolutely loved it.

Michelle, thanks and I hope there was something helpful in my list or others for you.
Karen, We'll have to work on that issue - maybe I'll put together some tips for gardening in pots for you...
Nutmeg - Nice to hear from you again. Welcome back and Yes, Wwoofing would be good, with or without kids.. I've heard of the book - will look for it now. thanks
