Fall Gardening Anyone? {Trying My Green Thumb}


So, I guess fall is coming. You could have fooled me, but according to the calendar, October is just around the corner, and hopefully temps will be dropping soon. I really need this to happen for my sanity.

We moved at the beginning of summer and had the best intentions for building raised beds prior to fall planting. Well…they haven’t been built yet, but I am hopeful that we can get them done in the next several weeks and plant some seedlings soon. One search on Pinterest and you can find tons of plans for raised beds of all kinds. I’m thinking of trying my had at this one because it’s cheap and simple.

Because I am not a professional gardener, and just in the beginning stages of learning myself, I will continue to share links to others who can offer much more wisdom than I can. I particularly like to follow the Five Little Homesteaders because they live in Phoenix and she speaks to gardening in this dry, hot climate. Please share your sources too!!

Happy Planting!

Elisa is a native Arizonan by birth and a Seattleite by heart. She is a wise, spirited woman who loves feeling the sun on her face, but also enjoys cold rainy days, complete with a cup of coffee and a good book or conversation. After graduating with a Masters in Counseling Psychology and seeing clients for a time, she took a hiatus to love on, play with, and offer copious amounts of hugs to our little girls, Malia and Jayden. She is now back working at Socorro Counseling and Consulting in Downtown Phoenix. Unafraid to laugh at herself and able to see the beauty in others, she makes everyone feel at ease, making her a genuine friend, therapist, and wife. Give her a cute pattern and a sewing machine or some spray paint and a piece of furniture and they are surely to be transformed into some warm piece of art that brightens our living space. She also finds creativity in cooking, making household cleaners, and anything Pinterest. In short, Elisa is stylish, wise, thoughtful, creative woman who makes everyone around her a better person, including her husband (who wrote this bio).
