Welcome to my gardening blog! Here you will find all kinds of useful information about Gardening including video tutorials and a planting schedule for Maricopa County(at the bottom of the page). I have learned a lot from several different sources- Beverly Austin who teaches an awesome organic gardening class on Saturday mornings at ASU East for just $5, Jim Kennard-the president of the Foodforeveryone foundation and teacher of the Mittleider Method of gardening, and my parents who always had us kids out working on the family garden. I hope you take away useful information and use it in your own gardens but even if you don't do everything I've outlined, the most important thing is that you plant! Now! Nothing will teach you more than actually doing it on your own!

Carrot, anyone?

A few months ago the Ward Young Women came and planted carrots and peas in our backyard for one of the girl's value project. The peas are long gone and were VERY sweet and yummy. Any time we went outside, we got a few pods to chomp on while talking with neighbors. Well, the greens of the carrots were getting tall so I picked one to see how big they are right now.... not very. -and they're bitter. I guess we can be patient and wait for them to get big and yummy.


  1. Props to you guys for growing a garden, no matter the size or quantity of produce. More people should know that they can provide just about all the carrots their family can eat for about $5, a little soil, sun, water and time. The carrots should be good in about a month, but make sure they get plenty of water. It may be a little late for the peas, they do better planted in early fall for a late winter / early spring harvest. Once the peas start producing, if they do, pick the first ones before they are fully ripe, then get ready because they will start puting out pods like crazy. If you ever want to come out to the farm, just give us a holler. www.boglefamilyfarms.blogspot.com
