Here’s a short video of what the “The Gro Project” is all about.
And here’s some of my gardening projects at home. Aside from having a flower garden, I also have this vegetable garden.
- I visualized and draw a raised garden bed in a paper. I decided to have the measurements 9 x 3 feet for an actual raised garden bed.
- My husband ordered the non-treated wood at the hardware. They were pre-cut two of each sizes of 9 feet and 3 feet wood.
- He drilled nails on the edges to create a sturdy rectangular box.
- We ordered bags of Miracle-gro potting mix to fill the raised bed. About 6 large bags.
- Ordered some lettuce, broccoli and cabbage seedlings, and planted them in the raised bed.
- I used LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit in feeding my vegetable plants. We were able to harvest vegetables like broccoli crowns, cabbage head and crisp lettuce. I was able to cook and serve steam broccoli stuffed cabbage and fresh salads in our lunches and dinners.
You too can experience the fruits of garden labor! Have fun gardening!
