How does your garden Grow?

Just having been one of the recipients of a free tree, the timing could not have been better as I have endeavored to try my hand at gardening.  The encouragement always welcome and help was offered and this spurred me on, help hasn’t shown up yet.    So this gift of a tree was the push I needed to complete the first half of my front yard.  I’d lost heart as the Beaugenvilla,  I’ve been watering daily hasn’t even grown an inch in 3 mo.  Not just that but it isn’t even mentioned in my hardback  “Florida Gardening” book.   I’ve taken a compost class given by the City of Lake Worth with Tony pictured here.

See it's edible, it's decorative and abundant Wheat Grass yup.

 Every time I see him he has something growing healthy most likely edible .  There is a magazine out there, a freebee but as I just left their site and it’s out dated, pick it up at your local grocery.  It has a turtle on the cover and the heading is about sustainability. I don’t advertise but each time I see Tony he has been helpful so i’m posting his classes here.   ORGANIC GARDENING CLASSES,  CHILDREN UNDER 12 Free.   All classes  appear to be around $20.   He is generous and well worth your time and money.
