This post brought to you by Nature's Care All opinions are 100% mine. Summer seems to be approaching full swing now -- finally! Unfortunately, between soccer tournaments and baseball games, we haven't had a chance to plant my raised garden beds yet, but it's definitely happening this week.

As I mentioned on Facebook a few weeks ago, I had every intention on planting my BHG Bombay Garden Vase using the three-step technique I shared last year...

After last year's failed attempt at container gardening, I wasn't sure if I wanted to attempt a garden this summer. I really wanted to get another Backyard Botanical Oasis, but the size was too large for the sunniest part of our yard, and sadly, the smaller version is no longer produced. In the end, we […]

This will be the first year in a good ten years that we won't have an actual garden... I'm so sad that we had to leave our Backyard Botanical Oasis (pictured below) behind when we moved. It provided us with a bountiful harvest year after year with minimal weeding and little hands-on watering, thanks to […]
