amazing how they take a life all of their own with a little water and sunlight. I love when I have fresh flowers and my whole room ends up smelling amazing. I'm and outdoorsy person as it is, so bringing the outside in has always been a big thing of mine.
3) Make sure to use mulch though. Just because you use the compost pile doesn't mean it's a full alternative for mulching your garden. Mulch suppresses weed growth, maintains soil moisture and stabilizes soil temperatures.
7) Love your space. Nothing is better then reaping the rewards of hard work and dedication. If you planted vegetables and peppers, then make some homemade salsa and give it as summer gifts. If you chose flowers then put them in a vase and show them off in your home, or give them to someone as a pick-me-up. The possibilities are endless when it comes to a garden. Make it your space, enjoy it, relax, grab a cup of coffee and smile. Use the area for inspiration and to escape from the hardships in your daily life, or stress you went through at work.
