Life is a Garden...Dig it!

Oh, to be a good gardener... I would even settle for being an okay gardener that can only grow a few things that our family really uses, like tomatoes or squash. My mom has always told me that my grandmother Virginia who I am named after had a green thumb and I remember thinking as a little girl that it must mean that I do too, right? Wrong. I am really bad at growing things! Remember my attempt at square foot gardening a few years ago? Stuff grew and grew and grew, but never produced anything edible. I might as well have had a garden of weeds. Blagh.

I think one of my problems is that I want a zero maintenance garden, as in I don't have to check on it, water it often or fertilize it. I just want to plant it and forget it (until I harvest it of course!). Luckily, there is a new product that might just help me out with that! It is called Miracle Gro Expand ‘n Gro™ concentrated planting mix.EnG Product Shot.png It expands up to 3x the size when you add water to it and feeds your plants for up to 6 months! That means you could literally fertilize only twice a year! That is my kind of gardening right there :) It has these natural fibers that hold in 50% more water than regular potting soil, so it helps out in the watering department too. Plus, since it is concentrated it is much lighter than regular potting soil, which is a big bonus for me because I usually undergo gardening endeavors while Anthony is at work so it is all me when it comes to the heavy lifting.

So there you go fellow gardening warriors! Another weapon in our arsenal in the fight to grow something. Anything. :)
