Whether you’re new at gardening or a seasoned pro garden soil is always going to be important, so today sharing how we make our own garden soil. When we first moved into Rosevine Cottage we had a massive garden at the back of the yard.
I don’t think there is anything better than working in the garden with the sun on your skin and the breeze teasing your hair as you care for tender shoots of plants. Or that accomplished feeling you get when you stand back and look at what you’ve accomplished, or that feeling of knowing where the food on your table came from, what went on it and just how fresh it is.
Gardening has been a family thing at the Cottage, I grew up watching my grandmother tenderly care for her beloved roses and working in the yard with my mom and dad.
Every spare second of summer is spent outside (usually barefoot) working in our many different gardens, I love the smell and the peacefulness of working out there. Watching the early morning sunlight spill over the back pasture and touch the brilliant sunflower petals and caress the dew on the tomatoes. The bees quietly buzzing between squash flowers, and rainbows dancing through the spray from the hose.
