My First Gardening Experiencebignet
I could still remember my experience in first gardening. I did not think that it would be a disaster on my part and it made me to think not to do gardening again. I almost decided to change my casual hobby into anything rage-inducing topic that you can possibly say to me.
It began with a couple of weeks after I transferred in to my first house. Of course, having one could bring so much excitement for me since I was in condos and apartments for quite a long time. I was too excited to manage my own grass, to paint walls and transform anything that my mind desired. I thought to start my gardening by fruit garden so that I could have fresh fruits at home-I really didn’t have any idea on gardening that time. I didn’t care to ask for help because I thought, it would just be easy for me to do it.
That time, I already had a grassless area which could have been attempted to be used for planting- even if the site was still full of rocks and not suitable for any plant. I allocated several days on clearing out the whole area. At that time, I didn’t have any idea on the difference between soil and dirt. So, I was managing a nutrition-less, hard, and unforgiving land.
I made several attempts to make my garden to look nice. So I did taking stained boards from my basement and used them as borders for my garden to make it free from pests ( see? I really didn’t have any idea). I also used my rock collections for my garden to make it shrine-looking in front.
I went to stores and looked for any fruit that could be planted- watermelon? Yeah! strawberries?Sure! I dug a hole and put some seeds in and watered faithfully everyday. Several weeks had gone, I noticed that there were no stuffs growing and even If I realized that there would be no plant grows, still I continued to water it hoping that there might be one- I was heartbroken.
So, feeling betrayed and dejected, I went to surfing the net and searched for gardening tips.I immediately landed to a site that provided me the real skills in gardening. It was then I learned about nutrients, ideal watering, soil consistency, season- and all other essential things for gardening. Then, after that I learned the exact things to do- ideal soil, nutrients, water and techniques.
If you are in the position I was, and you just desired to begin a new garden-you should learn from my mistake. Just make it sure you have researched enough for techniques and knowledge that you really need for achieving the home garden of your dream.
