Raised garden bed or square foot gardening? Maybe one can do both. Each one looks neat and not too difficult for a beginner to try. The following video offers information on gardening with a raised bed for your vegetables and flowers.
My fixer upper cabin cottage came with a cacti garden. One of my recent photos that I just love is from one of our recent snow days.
Last year I decided to plant a new flower garden on a corner of our lot beside a fence. In this flower garden I've planted rose bushes, miniature rose plants, lavender, sage, and a few other plants. Our fixer upper cabin cottage came with lots of rocks, so I used the rocks and red mulch.

My plants have withstood the winter, snow, and rain - even a couple of annuals. That extra precipitation kicked in the growing spurt for the weeds as you can tell. I've already been pulling weeds and getting the garden areas ready to plant. Spring arrived on the calendar last weekend. Weather-wise, however, Spring is a bit delayed with snow this week.
Check in again soon for the update on my gardens.
