PoP Gardening Tip #1

Well, it was a beautiful weekend in Petworth for gardening. I planted a vegetable garden as well as flowers and plants. I was at it as were many others that I saw around the neighborhood. So I actually, have learned three tips. 1: Mulch is the greatest thing in the world, it instantly makes your garden/yard look great and it's cheap as hell. 2: Blood meal. What the hell is that? Well, apparently it keeps the squirrels away and that is good enough explanation for me. You can find it at Home Depot or any gardening store. 3: invite friends over to help, it is fun and if you don't know what you are doing, like me, you can learn a lot. So I guess I really shouldn't be giving tips out. Do you guys have any?

Also, pick up some great starter herbs at the CH farmers market. I usually take them home, re-pot them into something a bit bigger, and let them grow.

PW soil is great for herbs, Richard.
The key is keeping birds and squirrels away from them. Birds recently devoured our basil plant.

My wife posted loose netting above the garden that's worked like a charm (knock on wood.)
