I still find it hard to believe that around this time last year, we started gardening for the very first time! Both my husband and I have parents who are avid gardeners, and growing up, neither of us were too interested in gardening at all. In fact, when I was a teenager, I avoided it like the plague. For me, I was never interested because my dad always made me do the chores that I absolutely hated. Like weeding, watering the plants, digging up bulbs, and raking leaves. I hated those chores, and STILL DO! Haha. However, nowadays I realize how important these chores are, so despite hating them, I do them because I want a nice garden. I looked up when I wrote my first garden post on this blog, and I just had my one year blogaversary. March 14th, 2010 was my very first entry! Back then, we knew nothing about gardening, really everything was a hands-on learning experience and reading all YOUR gardening blogs. The gardening blogsphere is so knowledgeable! In no time flat, I became totally and completely obsessed with learning as much as I could about gardening. I became a complete sponge. This time last year, we owned one book, "Garden Primer". It's still my favorite, and go-to resource. Fast forward one year and now we have this stack!
guy, and this guy. What are your favorite gardening / preserving books. What do you recommend we get next?
