Time to #Digin with @HomeDepot Garden Club

For as long as I could remember I’ve always wanted a garden, a full fledged chock full of veggies kinda garden. I’ve also wanted an apple tree. Over the last 3 years we’ve been very successful with tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans and blueberries. Watermelons and peppers don’t seem to like us very much though. I achieved my goal, kinda.

I’ve never done much research on what should be planted where and when; just really hoped for the best most of the time. We’ve had some failures but overall my family has been able to harvest a great deal of food and enjoy over the summer. I probably should have reviewed this “Find Your Zone” map from Home Depot’s Garden Club. It would’ve saved me all the guess work I’m sure.

Home Depot has been my go to each year is buy my seedlings, plants, soil and tools. It usually happens like this.
Me on a bright sunny Spring day “Rob, let’s go get everything for the garden”
Rob “But I was hoping to just relax today”
Melinda “You can relax next week. I want to start the garden today”

We then head to our local Home Depot, load up on soil, mulch for the yard and tons of plants to get the veggies and herbs planted.

Rob is dreading this conversation from me. It’s likely to happen within the next 2 weeks. I can’t wait. The kids can’t wait. My yard can’t wait.

This year I have a couple projects in mind. I want to build up the garden beds, level out the walkway at the entrance into the yard and build up the ground at the bottom of our steps so it doesn’t puddle when it rains.

  1. Oh my! This is perfect timing! This is the year we’ve committed to starting our first garden – and I need all the tips and tricks I can get. Of course, the coupons are always welcome, too! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love this! Thanks for sharing…I kill everything outside and give up. Hubs & I were just talking about putting in 2 raised gardens in a few weeks, this will help me! Thanks!

  3. Very neat! I should look into it. I tried growing once and failed miserably but I had zero support – I was solo, I won’t do that again. Thanks for sharing, I have to check it out next time I’m there.

  4. My husband has the same reaction as yours to the let’s get the garden ready” talk!

  5. Haha – sounds like talking to my husband! I have to say, I never thought I had enough room in my back yard to have a garden – but after discovering raised beds, I have TWO back there now. It’s so awesome to raise something from a tiny seed and then have it on your dinner table.

  6. I’m so ready to get digging, and Home Depot is our go-to place as well. My yard is in desperate need of some gardening advice, can’t wait to get started!

  7. Had no idea they had a garden club! Thanks for sharing.

  8. I love gardening! I’m going to have to join. We already got our lettuces in the ground but we will need much more veggies in the future!

  9. I am so excited to #digin this year! My husband built raised planter beds last weekend and we started our seeds last month. Almost time to transplant outdoors and watch them grow 🙂 Good luck with your growing.
