One of the best things about having a container gardening blog, is anything that goes wrong in my container gardens has an upside - it gives me something to write about. My tomatoes have blight? After raging at the fates for awhile and using language that would make longshoremen blush, I often say... hmmm...now there's a blog. My seeds don't germinate? My basil gets bugs, or my begonias don't blossom? Well, that I can write about that!
Like most bloggers I know, I live in fear that I will run out of things to say. When I started this web site, I was worried because I live in a place where the container gardening season is rather short. I wondered what I would write about all the long winter. So far it it hasn't been a problem.
The great thing about container gardening (or any gardening for that matter) is that even in the dead of winter there is lots to learn and projects to work on. And it is always the growing season somewhere - even when I'm under several feet of snow. And, if all else fails, when the growing season over, there is merely a moment before the seed catalogs flood in with their equal measure of education and temptation.
