Who needs a green thumb?...even the green giant will envy your vegetables Spring is definitely in the air...so you'd better get ready for the warm days and the opportunity to spend your free time outside in the sunshine getting your garden ready for this year's harvest.
You say you don't have a green thumb...None needed...Picture this if you can...an entire vegetable garden made out of cinder blocks...Yes I said cinder blocks...a cinder block garden is the most no-nonsense approach to a neat, easy, virtually weed free and productive garden.
A cinder block garden takes less time, less money and less water to plant and grow your very own fruits and vegetables. These days with little or no free time on your hands, you've given up or forgotten about some of the things you once enjoyed...Like growing your own vegetables and fruits right in your very own garden. Imagine, succulent and delicious fresh fruits and vegetables to enjoy through the spring and summer months (you'll also be able to preserve these wonderful tidbits by canning, freezing, dehydrating or root cellaring).
With the cinder block method, not only will you have a plentiful harvest, it will be the easiest, garden you've ever grown...If you're a beginner all the better, you'll never have to know the drudgery of weeding, or rototilling. Being hunched over for hours or on your knees pulling weeds until your back just can't take it any longer is now a thing of the past.
The reasons are clear for the ease and convenience of this method...Using a good soil mix to start with, leaves no necessity to rototill, with good soil you have good draining (even after a soaking rain) and best of all you never walk on this soil so it stays light and fluffy...It's so fluffy that you can dig in the garden with your hands, which eliminates dragging your gardening tools in and out and making sure they're clean, sharp and rust free. You'll use less fertilizer, this is another great bonus that saves money because you concentrate the fertilizer to the plants only, just add the fertilizer to the planting beds and there's no need to walk through wet, soggy, fertilized ground...Your rows are clean, weed free and dry.
The very best part is that this method is virtually fool proof. This is a fantastic gardening system that will fit every age and every lifestyle. Children LOVE being in the garden and the joy they experience watching their food grow from seed to harvest is amazing. Plus they won't need to stomp through the garden to pick the veggies, less mess inside and out and with no weeds to pull, they'll enjoy the experience, not dread it.
It's also a fan favorite of senior citizens...Older people who thought that their gardening days were over are now ecstatic that they too get to enjoy gardening again with ease and convenience with little or no physical limitation. You'll also get a place to sit while you garden (cinderblocks are stacked 2 high, which gives you a great ledge to sit on while planting, watering, weeding and picking). Each cinderblock weighs about 29 pounds, so you may need a little help getting started, but once it's built you're good to go. It's just as easy as snapping Lego's together...no need for nails, hammers or saws.
Handicapped individuals can now join in with the family gardening...With everything being up and off the ground makes this a possibility for just about everyone to enjoy the experience of growing your own garden...Even city dwellers (with a small patch of yard or driveway) can establish a bountiful crop.
The cinder block system can be used in any State under just about any condition, so if you're ready to grow your own vegetables this spring and summer, you'd better get started now...Not only will this method have you harvest more vegetables and fruits but you'll also save money on seed, fertilizer and water not to mention the amount of time you'll save. We can all use a little more time.
This method is truly a gardening revolution... The configuration of the cinder block garden lets you concentrate your time, water and fertilizer to the growing space alone. It's a combination of ancient gardening techniques and modern equipment brought together making this the easiest gardening system around...Who says you have to have a green thumb???
Don't hesitate...get started now...Happy Gardening...
