Green Diva confession . . . I just haven’t gotten into the garden spirit yet this year. Usually I’d have trays of baby plants all over the house by now! Guess I’m busy growing other things this spring. Sorry gardens! Some years I’m in the game early and plant my own organic babies; some years, I’m searching around for organic seedlings (which aren’t always so easy to find!).
However, the garden bug always bites me at some point in the spring . . . so, I’m hopeful this post will get me going! Our beloved Green Diva Becky Striepe invited us to participate in Garden Week on Crafting a Green World.
I got inspired by searching through our site and seeing all the fun we’ve been in the garden over the past couple of years. Hoping you will get inspired by this Green Diva Spring Garden Roundup (NOT the nasty chemical roundup either!).
1. Make it Green
Green Diva Lisa did an excellent post, 5 things to do to make sure your garden is green, with some great reminders and resources for some of the basics, which are always good for a spring refresher (at least for this green diva!).
2. Compost Happens Man
Green Diva Gina did an excellent post with everything you need to know about composting, even if you don’t have a garden!
3. Grow Your Own: Sustainable Seedlings
I had a lot of fun last year making DIY biodegradable seed pots to get my organic seedlings going. It may be a little late for some things, but there is still time to have your own seed pot making party. That didn’t sound right . . .
4. Be Inspired by Local Farmers
We had a chance to some of our favorite local farmers last year . . . check out this fun short video . . .
5. Get Creative in the Garden
As the result of our fun farm tour (see video above), Green Diva Mizar got very inspired to make this hilarious and VERY green diva shoe planter
Visit the post she did about this crazy shoe planter to get the full tutorial . . .
But GD Mizar was FULL of garden repurposing and up cycling ideas!
Here’s her tutorial on how to make a planter out of an old dresser drawer, PLUS a mess of other ideas . . .
Like me, you’ll probably have a lot of waste during the process so it’s a great idea to find a service like a man and van rubbish removal service.
