My Back Hurts Already.

It’s gardening time in the land of Minneapolis Metbloggers so let’s take some poetic license and spread the seeds of information.


I spent my early afternoon shopping for garden supplies. I needed to buy a few trees, replacements for those destroyed in last fall’s big wind storm, and to browse for some new gardening ideas. 

I found an interesting annual called the daisy vine that grows 5-8′ and flowers all summer and I bought a few whitespire birch trees. Bachmans is having a tree sale that includes 15% off and free delivery for all trees, except pines.

Any other gardening deals happening we should all know about? Anyone else getting worked up to garden?

    Last year I did a ton of trimming in our backyard and never took any of it to compost. It pretty much composted in our backyard until we moved.

    That sounds a lot like what I’m going through. We bought our house in August and prior it sat empty and over grown for a year.

    Still, when I see the garden spaces uncovered it’s encouraging.

    Came across Metro Blooms on mnspeak.

    We are a private nonprofit volunteer-based educational organization which seeks to partner with other organizations, businesses, professional associations, local governments and watershed districts to promote environmentally sound gardening and landscaping practices to improve the health of our land and water resources.

    Looks like a great resource.
