Successes and Failures of a Beginner Gardener
Gardening is a valuable skill, especially if you desire to save money in the grocery budget and aim to live a healthy lifestyle. You don't have to live on a large plot of land in order to grow your own produce either! Many people automatically think living in a house with a fenced in yard limits what they can grow. This is far from true. I wish I would have understood more about gardening when I lived in a suburban neighborhood. But I didn't, and because of that, our garden was a failure and I deemed it a waste of time.

Some of these aspects of country living I knew going in, but I didn't fully grasp until I experienced them firsthand. So if you are thinking about moving to the countryside any time soon, here are some differences you can count on.

This is like the coffee talk corner. Sometimes I give organization tips or relationship advice, but a lot of times I'm just sharing about the everyday moments that make up my life.
