Gardening is kind of seen as something for older people, isn’t it? If you are “young and hip”, the last thing you want to do is spend your time gardening when you can be out partying. But gardening can actually be really peaceful and can help you feel way less stressed after dealing with things like class or work.
But don’t just get outside and start digging up dirt like your neighbor’s dog: have a plan so that you can get the most out of the gardening that you do and so you won’t end up spending too much time cultivating your garden.
Don’t get cheap-o soil just because it lets you save a few bucks. Instead, spend for the good soil so that you can really let your garden grow and do the work for you. If you buy shoddy soil, you are going to get shoddy results.
When you have the kind of soil that works for you, that means you can spend more time with your girls and less time with dirt all over you.
It can be boring and stupid to follow instructions on just about anything, but when it comes to seed packets, you should probably at least give it a glance. The information on the packets will tell you about stuff like how much spacing you need to implement, what kind of depth you need to plant at, and the other information that you will need to make sure your garden is doing well.
As easy as it is to skip the directions – and it is easy – try not to because your garden will flourish if you just follow the directions and don’t wing it like you might with everything else. Follow these guidelines and you can make gardening a fun hobby regardless of your age.
