How does your garden grow? #naturescare | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


It’s been over a month since my first post about Scott’s Nature’s Care products, and the start of my own personal garden. I’m excited to report that all of my seedlings are off to a fantastic start, and I’ve already moved most of them to my raised beds and larger containers.

Being in southwest Texas has it perks (aside from being heaven on earth) when it comes to gardening. We can start early, and we have a long growing season, that is actually really 2 growing seasons.

Regardless of your geographic location, there’s still time to get some seedlings started and have you very own edible garden. Edible gardening has really taken off in recent years, and you’ll find all kinds of great advice right here on the Miracle-Gro Learn And Grow site. Pinterst is also a wealth of information of ideas for different types of edible gardening….from raised beds, to container gardening, to verticle gardening for small spaces.

Using Nature’s Care products is a great way to get your garden off to a great start. Nature’s Care is a brand new natural gardeing line of products, available at most major retailers. The new line includes all-natural potting soil, fertilizer, and garden pest spray. I’ve used all three products over the last 5 weeks, and have loved the results I’ve seen in my seed starts. My tomato plants are robust, my okra plants are shooting up, and my herb garden has never been so lush. I cannot wait to start harvesting so I can enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of my labor. One thing I’m really looking forward to making is Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil salad!

My beautiful basil

Here’s my recipe for Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Salad:

2 cups of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half 10-12 basil leaves, rough chopped 1/4 cup of mozzarella pearls 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
