Believe it or not, Spring is on the way! Are you getting ready to do your planting?
Every spring we make new plans for our tiny porch-garden. Today we were looking at some inspirational photos from the Dig Drop Done Foundation for some quick inspiration.
This is my favorite photo – first of all, because it includes the Jonquil (my mother’s birthday flower), and second, because of the creative use of space.
I love the onions in the kitchen scale; just snip ’em with your kitchen shears and they’re ready to be rinsed in the sink, patted dry and chopped for a salad or garnishing! You can visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more about what bulbs are right for you, and to figure out which of the three helpful ladies can help you achieve gardening nirvana.

You can visit Curbside Chaos to develop a region-specific planting guide. Here’s how to use the Garden Guru Tool:

- Choose the type of bulb that you want to grow
- Check out the planting guide that shows you how to plant your bulbs!
I used the tool, and here’s how I can get some gorgeous crocus blooms next spring:
If your yard could use some love, Here’s the awesome part: If you enter a photo of your yard into the Curbside Chaos contest, you can win a $5,000 yard makeover from Taniya Nayak! Follow @TaniyaNayak on Twitter for tips and inspiration!
AND, with every share on Twitter, the Dig Drop Done Foundation will donate $1 to Rebuilding Together, a WONDERFUL organization that helps rehabilitate homes and preserve affordable home ownership. I have seen the work Rebuilding Together does in my own community, and it truly is amazing.
Are you excited yet? I am!
