February was our first gardening month with both meetings focused on the topic. Our stake food storage specialist taught us about choosing and starting seeds; preparing the soil; deciding what and how much to plant; and container gardening. She encouraged us to buy our vegetable plants from a nursery (instead of a local discount store) and explained which plants not to buy. She also gave us a recipe for a natural bug repellant. Tom T. showed us how to make rain barrels.
What did you learn at these meetings that helped your garden grow? Did you learn anything new, try it, and had a successful outcome?
