Gardening: Spring is coming, and so are the Gardenieres...

Written by

There's over a foot of snow on the ground here at Rock Father HQ right now, yet here we are with the first post on The Rock Father Gardening Blog for 2013. Oh, how I've missed gardening... and it's been five months since this section received an update. I didn't get to blog about Gardening as much as I wanted to last year, since having a newborn (June) was the obvious focus. This year, I'll be able to have both girls in the Garden with me, and as we're thinking spring, so are the folks at Home Depot and The Scotts Company, who are launching a bi-weekly webseries called GARDENIERES. 

Originally launched on YouTube last year, the Gardenieres will be rolling out video tips featuring great projects for many different regions. Check out this preview featuring host William Moss:
For more on the series, check out the Home Depot Garden Club Website, or http://www.gardenieres.com/ 

We'll be starting seeds inside here soon (though my wife says I can't "use the kitchen as a greenhouse this year"), and with that comes a flashback to last year's gardening season. Will you be gardening with the kids?
