Make it easier for thanksgiving

If your a gardening like myself you save your produce by freezing them. I am gonna help you with using the frozen produce from this years crop. The first frozen produce is green beans a tradition produce in my family take your green beans and thaw them out for 24-48 for thanksgiving when you are ready to cook the dinner take your thawed out green beans and put them in a casserole dish and take a can of cream of mushroom soup size depends on how big of a dish you are making I prefer one  1 10 1/2 ounces can of mushroom soup then take your 1/2 cup of milk  and 1 teaspoon of soy sauce 1 dash of pepper 4 cups of cook cut green beans and 1 1/3 cup of French’s French fried onions the put it all together in a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until the green bean mixture is hot and bubbling stir the mixture then top it off with the French’s fried onions then bake it for 5 more minutes or until golden brown . I hoped this help get use of your harvested green beans and make thanksgiving a little bit easier for you hope you have a happy thanksgiving

Three Easy plants to grow in the winter.

So if you are like me you like your plants but if you live in a climate where you get snow and freezing temperatures you are probably asking yourself how and what plants can I grow inside. Well today the Garden guy has three plants that you can grow indoors while it is freezing outside plant #1 is tomato’s your probably asking yourself how is that possible tomato’s have to grow outside technically tomato’s can be an outdoor and indoor plant just when you plant inside get yourself a good size pot to put garden soil in and take your seeds from any tomato it could be a tomato you grew or you bought at the store evenly spread the seeds into the soil and make sure to cover the seeds completely make sure the plant gets about 6 hours of sunlight and water the plant when the soil feels dry. Plant #2 my personal favorite is strawberry plants there is two ways to do this you can take a already strawberry plant you already have preferably one of the runners from your strawberry plant you may already have make sure to get a runner with baby roots or the other way is strawberry seeds and put in the pot filled with garden soil but just a heads up the seed method takes a little longer grow the plant and get produce off of the plant make sure to keep the soil moist and spongey. Plant # 3 is cat grass for the cat lovers cat grass helps with cat digestion for example if the cat has a hair ball and is having trouble throwing it up. Offer cat grass to them to help them. You can buy the cat grass kit online at or at your local department store in the pet section sometimes they only sell seeds or the kits it depends if they have in stock or not. So I hope The Garden Guy helped you enjoy your plants and gardening by gardening inside in the winter months happy planting ❤️The Garden Guy🌱

How to start a compost pile

Today The Garden Guy will help you start a compost pile or bin if you want to save money on buying gardening soil but never wanted to to pay the price for a bag of soil im here to help to start composting you need to start with a even on brown material and green material let me explain what a brown material is a brown material is dead leaves, sticks, anything plants that are brown and not living is considered a brown material. Now a green material is fresh weeds picked in or around the garden or flower beds and fruit and vegetable scraps, egg shells make sure you don’t use any meat products because they smell and are not good in the garden. To make sure the compost turns into dirt is make sure you and water to it water lightly killer a wet sponge if you water it to much and it dripping wet it will stink like a rotten smell and will be no good I will have to restart all over. When you lightly water the compost pile make sure you take a garden shovel and turn the pile because that we let air into the pile which will help the pile beak down and turn into dirt faster. FUN FACT: A Compost Pile is called Black Gold because it is the richest soil for you plants and gives the plants nutritions to help them grow. Hope this help you grow your own black gold if you have any further questions comment on this post and The Garden Guy will get back to you ASAP.

Are You’re Plants Talking To you??

Are your plants talking to you? Not by saying hi or hello. I mean do they Wilt or drop there leaves or turning brown. Or if you don’t know I’m here to help you listen to them. Yes it is true plants talk to you by giving you signs of stress like brown tips for example. If your plants have brown tips it means they are getting to much sun or if that is not the problem it could be that they are thristy. Easy way to see if they need water is to put your index finger in the soil about a inch down if it feels like dry sand it would be time to water them and you can use a spray bottle on the mist setting and mist the leaves make sure to spray in the day time when the sun is out because if you spray the leaves in the late evening it will not have enough time to evaporate the extra water on the leaves and the moisture on the plant will eventually rot the leaves on the plant and will die. So next time you look at your plants and see if they are talking to you. Have a fun listening to you plants they will thank you in the long run. Have a safe Halloween 🎃. Lowest Prices! We have hundreds of drought tolerant selections. Delivered direct to your home. ❤️The Garden Guy🌱
