Gardening Season Time To Get Started

Gardening Season Time To Get Started

Gardening Season is upon us soon and I’m itching to get started. Getting me some potting soil today and starting my seeds. I have more seeds to plant this year than ever before. Because I’m increasing my vegetable start program. What I mean by that is I will have more vegetable starts for sale this year than any other year. I’m concentrating on my vegetable starts this year because it a fast easy way to make some serious cash. It may only be a dollar or two at a time but I use this method to sell lots of other plants unrelated to vegetable plants. For instance I sell bamboo plants so when people come to buy bamboo I also offer them my vegetable starts and 90% of the time they buy, buy, buy. I also sell water plants, trees and other perennials. This gives me even more opportunities to sell the little veggie plants. here is another way I will be selling my vegetable starts  www.amazon.com/shops/A13JAQNPXDNX at my new Amazon Store.

Gardening Season The More You Grow The More You Know

In my opinion experience is the best teacher. I mean don’t get me wrong research is another great teacher. But I mean I learn more by doing. Hands on experience has no match. When it comes to gardening season I try to grow every different kind of plant that I can. Even some that won’t make it through the winter. Like elephant ears they must be dug up or you will more than likely lose them. They will only grow during gardening season in Zone 6 unless you have them in a heated greenhouse.

Gardening Bamboo

When I started growing bamboo I knew nothing about the plant. Now I know more than I ever even thought I could. It’s crazy but I actually understand this plant that is so misunderstood. I get it I really do. And if you grow it you probably understand the same things I do about this magnificent plant. I believe the plant was put here by God for us to use for building purposes and manufacturing purposes. I mean really I believe it is the perfect plant. It has an unlimited number of uses. It is a renewable resource and will replenish itself every year provided that it is maintained properly. It can make anything from clothing to computers. Now what other plant or material can do that. Get your gardening season off to a great start by planting some bamboo this year. You can get it right here on this site and have it shipped right to your door.

Gardening  Season: Bamboo Would Benefit Everyone If We All Grew It

Other than plastic which is man-made. And harmful to the environment. bamboo actually helps the environment. Take yourself back about  20 years or more and see how many products were being made from plastic and are now being made with organic materials like bamboo. Organic materials in a landfill become dirt. Plastics never go away and continue to weep poisonous chemicals back into our soil rendering it useless. I mean think about it! If we could eliminate the need for plastics by using bamboo to replace it our landfills would become giant piles of use-able soils. Instead of great big heaps of poisonous trash. that never goes away. With all  the products being made from bamboo there is no way the supply can keep up with the demand. This puts us all in a great place to benefit from growing bamboo. Plus just the things I use it for around the house benefits me everyday and every year. Once you understand the plant and how it grows it is easy to contain. Because it grows new canes every year the older canes which are the strongest canes can be cut for use to make products. Leaving the new canes to age and get their strength. A bamboo canes is strongest in its 5th year of growth. And I mean strong.  But, don’t get me wrong there are some very weak bamboo as well. These grow to enormous sizes but the wood quality is terrible. They are mostly grown for  their size and beauty. If you grow bamboo and maintain it you can profit from it. I hope you have learned something here today. Unfortunately, I’ve gotta go gardening season is right around the corner and I’ve got a lot to do.

Thank You
