Toxic Gardening


Toxic Gardening

There are so many things to learn when a person wants to become an adequate gardener. (I have given up on the goal of a Master Gardener- at least for now.) Maybe, this season, I can become a knowledgeable gardener when it comes to the lawn and to growing strawberries.

When to use fertilizers… weed inhibiters… the length to mow grass…

I know the truth about none of these things. And there seems to so many varied truths!

How to cultivate soil when planting strawberries… trying a no-till garden… which strawberry plants are best for the soils and the climate conditions of my home…

Again, my knowledge is limited!

So this year, my goal is to make baby-steps in lawn maintenance and harvesting strawberries…


I will not become a Master Gardener in one season, but hopefully I will not be a toxic gardener!

Written for The Daily Post: Toxic.  I have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My chosen topics are as follows:  (Monday) Life in Retirement; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.



I'd love to hear from you. It's nice to know other people are out there.
