I heard on the radio into work the other morning that our new First Lady, Michelle Obama, plans to create, and maintain, her own vegetable garden and give those vegetables to the chefs in the White House to use. We can use Michelle Obama as our motivation to get outside this spring and start growing our own vegetables as well.
So, while First Lady, Michelle Obama, may have a horticultural skill, others may not. Therefore, we have tools to help us in our vegetable garden adventure.
The Awesome Auger is the As Seen on TV garden tool from last year that will never go out of style. The Awesome Auger attaches to any size drill, and can help get your ground ready to plant your new vegetable garden. While the Awesome Auger has many other uses as well, it will help a great deal in the beginning stages of your garden.
You may find it difficult to remember to water your vegetable garden, or have the confidence that you give it the proper amount of water. Two (out of many options) that you have are to use a sprinkler system, or the very popular, Aqua Globes. A Portable Sprinkler System attaches right to your outdoor spigot and the 3 sprinkler heads can be positioned however you want. The Portable Sprinkler System is great because you can also use this to keep your whole lawn watered regularly as well. A second option to making sure your vegetable garden gets the water it needs is to use the well-known As Seen on TV item, the Aqua Globes. The hand blown Aqua Globes are designed to properly water the plants with the correct amount of water – not too much, and not too little. The Aqua Globes also work great if you decide to go away and you want to make sure your vegetable garden is maintained. With these watering options, you can relax when it comes to watering your garden.
If you decide a full backyard garden is not for you, you still have the option to grown your own vegetables at home with the Topsy Turvy. The Topsy Turvy now has 3 varieties to grow plants, vegetables, herbs, and flowers at home even without a yard. The Topsy Turvy hangs and grows your vegetables up-side-down, so even the apartment/condo owner can enjoy fresh vegetables as well. Try out the Topsy Turvy Tomato Grower to grow tomatoes, other veggies, herbs, and flowers. Also try the new Topsy Turvy Strawberry Planter for strawberries and herbs, and the Topsy Turvy Hot Pepper Planter for the hot peppers to spice up your home-cooked meals.
