15 Resources For The Beginner Gardener

Do you want to start Gardening this year but don’t know where to begin? As many of you know I love gardening and have been gardening for years. I actually started vegetable gardening because I wanted to serve my family organic veggies but couldn’t afford to do so. So I decided to grow my own! I slowly started increasing my garden every  year to include not only vegetables but berry bushes, fruit trees, and herbs. If you’re new to gardening you are probably doing lots of research trying to figure out where to start. Well, look no further! I’ve put together a great resource guide for the beginner gardener (and I’m sure experienced gardeners will find some good info too).
