I encourage you to take a look through a delightfully helpful online gardening site that recently popped onto the internet, Smart Gardener. I had to compete and prove myself among strapping young muscle-bound farmers to gain a position at a local, organic farm in search of healthy dirt and the sort information provided on this site. Smart Gardener makes it all so much easier.
Wealth of Information
Sharing the wealth of our land seems to be what inspires Smart Gardener. Smart Gardener gives consumers “exactly what they need to easily grow their own healthy, organic vegetables. “They provide consumers with “highly personalized tools and garden plans based on key inputs including geo-location and household size.”
Sign Up, Start Planning
This service streamlines gardening concepts without degrading them. Smart Gardener brings us the complete inner world of what one needs to learn in regards to dirt, seeds, and weather. The site gives us detailed information on these things, gives it to us in a simple structure, and, thus, all mystery from how to create planning beds to how to conduct the harvest disappears.
Smart Gardener is the best thing since the Farmer’s Almanac, in my opinion. The information is intricately organized. It is easy to put in action. With this knowledge, one will be able to make use of the wonders of dirt and all that comes from it. This service offers a complex weather-mapping algorithm and an extremely rich database of over 500 plants. One can easily shop for seeds through sponsors like Peaceful Valley Farm Supply and Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds on the site.
I’m convinced that if you check this site out, you will find success with its step-by-step approach. Kristee Rosendahl’s ability to mainstream all of this makes it possible for one to begin now, begin again, or join in community gardens with proven sources of well-considered information. Hungry for earth, food, and dirt? Dig, explore, join agriculture at its roots in the dirt about or above your home.
Here’s a quick look at what you can do on the site:
